Borhani


This is a very traditional and popular curd base drink from Bangladesh served in parties, weddings or on special occasions. I had this drink at Fakhruddin in Singapore. I must say it's an amazing drink. This drink helps in digesting the heavy food. The curd is blended with the other ingredients and it's served cold. The drink has the flavor of mint and it's bit spicy as green chilli, ginger, pepper corn and mustard seeds are some of the ingredients added in the drink. The sugar is added as per the requirement and taste you want. 
I have added mustard oil to enhance the flavor of the drink.
