What is Chaas?
Chaas is often described as a yogurt drink. It's usually made of 4 ingredients - yogurt, water, salt and cumin. It is popular in the Indian states Gujarat and Rajasthan, where it is drunk with the main meal.
Before I shifted to a vegan diet in 2008, I used to drink Chaas quite often. Mum made her own yogurt at home and we'd make Chaas from it. However, after becoming aware of how the dairy industry works, there was no compromise. I had to shift to a vegan diet and therefore Chaas was out!
