Garlic buttermilk (Taka kadi)

I have garnished this dish with some coriander leaves in above picture, but in the original dish, coriander is not used.

Buttermilk 3 cups
Garlic cloves 4-5
Green chillies 2-3

Heat oil and fry garlic cloves. Add green chillies, one cup of water and turmeric. Boil for 5 min. Remove from flame & add this to buttermilk. Add salt.

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 5min

Hi shilpa

Had a query, Garlic should be chopped well or just like tht have to fry it in oil….

Shilpa: You can do it any way. Just make sure to remove the outer skin while frying garlic, otherwise it pops up.

Hi! i think u forgot to mention what happens to green chillies?? r they fried also along with garlic or added alongwith turmeric to the water ??


I have been looking at your Buttermilk Gravy recipe (yum) and found this one also. But When do the chillies go in? With the turmeric, or afterwards with the buttermilk?

Shilpa: Updated. Thanks



My Aai added Besan to the buttermilk and boiled it for sometime before adding the above mentioned tadka (she also added rai and jeera to the tadka). Besan doesn’t change the taste at all, but makes it thicker in consistency. I love it with both chapati and rice :)


I never drank or liked buttermilk…but i tried this recipe n since then i have started loving buttermilk……Thanks alot..all ur recipes are jus awesome..
