{Product Review} Britannia Masala Chaas – Ek Cool Ehsaas & Burger with Green Mung Bean and Potato Patty


You may be wondering by reading the title of the post….Yeah I had the same expression when I got a mail from Sagarika, to review Britannia’s Masala Chaas. Chaas which is nothing but ‘buttermilk’ is an integral part of Indian cuisine. It is very commonly made in almost every household in all the seasons. Chaas is made with minimal ingredients which are easily available in almost every Indian household. With such simple ingredients and simple preparation why would anyone go to buy a packaged product was the question which was in my mind till I received the samples of Britannia Masala Chaas.

FIRST LOOK:
As you can see in the picture, the bottle looks cute. It is made of plastic and it is easy to carry. Perfectly sealed to lock the flavours and the seal can be opened easily. The bottle is handy and you can carry it with you easily.

TASTE:
As it is clearly written on the label of the bottle, that the chaas has got curry leaves, ginger and jeera (Cumin)….you get a refreshing taste from the ingredients used. I am not a chaas loving person…but I liked the taste of this one. You get the hint of the ingredients used. The consistency of chaas is properly balanced…it is not too thin or too thick.
PRICE:
150 ml bottle pack will cost you Rs.15/-.

SHELF LIFE:
The shelf life is four months before opening and can be stored in an ambient environment.
WHY BRITANNIA MASALA CHAAS?
I will answer the question now…why the packaged product when you can make it at home so easily….? What I felt after seeing and tasting the Britannia Masala Chaas is, you can pack this with the lunch box for your kids or husband or you can carry with your lunch box too….As this is neatly sealed you can carry it comfortably in your handbag along with other things. If you are a frequent traveler that to on long distances then this masala chaas is very handy and you can easily carry. If you are going out on a picnic, then you can easily carry these bottles. Carry a bottle with you to office and drink in when you feel like snacking in the evening…a good way to watch your weight and cut down the junk food. As summer is coming, it is good to store up some bottles in the fridge as you can carry them with you when you are going out in hot sun or you can serve it in your summer noon parties. A perfect drink to fit the new age lifestyle.

FINAL VERDICT:
A drink on go…cool, refreshing and low in carb….Neatly spiced and perfectly sealed. Easy to carry and gives you a cool ehsaas when had chilled. It is like 8/10 product to me. Try this Britannia Masala Chaas to keep you refreshingly cool this summer.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS:
You can add fresh mint leaves, by transforming the contents into serving glasses or kullad or you can just chill and serve. You can even garnish with minced coriander and rose petals.

BURGER with GREEN MUNG BEAN & POTATO PATTY :
Last weekend I happened to meet one of my friends who stay on other side of the Bangalore.  As I already knew it will take 1-1½ hour to reach there by car, I thought of packing something to munch in the car. As I already had the samples of Britannia Masala Chaas to carry with me, I thought I will make burger(s) to go with it. I made green mung bean & potato patty for the burgers on go….
You may be wondering why mung bean/mung dal….actually I soaked mung bean to make salad…then when I pressure cooked it, it turned so soft…that I can’t make salad…so I thought of making tikki…and I ended up making burger patty…which was yum, nutritious and easy to make. Try this simple burger for kid’s lunch box or snack box or for kid party or you can have it for your own snack party…..With burger, chips and chaas it was like picnic in car for us…. :-)

I like your product reviews, done very professionally!
May not try Britannia chaas except when going on outstation trips, for we can easily make it at home.
150 ml seems a small serving size - usual serving size for bevarages is 200ml.
Love your burger recipe. So healthy. Pics are amazing as usual.
