Wash, peel, and cut the beetroot. Place it with around half a cup of water in a pressure cooker. Cook for 2 whistles or until the beetroot softens. (You can also boil it in a saucepan instead). Allow the cooked beetroot to cool completely.
Later, add it to a blender along with mint leaves, ginger and green chillies. Blend to form a smooth puree and strain it.
In a bowl, mix curds, water, jeera powder and salt to taste. Whisk or churn to start making buttermilk.
Add the beetroot puree and churn thoroughly. Taste and adjust salt and spices as required.
Adding a tadka (tempering) is optional. For this, heat oil and add mustard seeds along with curry leaves. Once they crackle, pour the mixture on top of the chaas and stir.
Serve beetroot buttermilk chilled with ice or place it in the refrigerator to cool. Top with a pinch of jeera powder or a few mint leaves.
