Desi Chaas

Chaas (Buttermilk) is a great thing to slurp if you want to drink something that aids your digestive system and also hydrates at the same time. Found anywhere on Delhi streets, it is a replacement for soda products or any soft drink. Soda and other carbonated products damage your body because of various ingredients in them.
