How to Make Ayran?

Ayran is one of the favorite drinks in Bulgarian cuisine and is often present on the table, especially during the warm months of the year. Like any favorite drink or dish, there is not one particular recipe that everyone agrees on as being a classic, when it comes to ayran and tripe soup. And so we come to the question how to make an ayran and what are its secrets.

There are dozens of recipes for making ayran around the world, which are guaranteed to fascinate you. Along with the regular ayran recipe, which is done by whipping yogurt and diluting it with water at a certain ratio, there are mint ayrans, carbonated water ayrans, spiced ayrans, the so-called lassi and many more versions. It is very important to choose pure and thick yogurt, without sweeteners and additives. But let's get back to the question of how to make an ayran.

The easiest way to prepare ayran is by beating the yogurt well and adding water to it until the desired consistency. It is important to note that for the preparation of a delicious ayran, you need to choose a quality yogurt and beat it very well. For this purpose, you can use a fork or wire whisk. The goal is to get as much air into the yogurt as possible so that you get bubbles when you dilute it with the cold water. If desired, you can flavor the ayran with salt.

In some parts of the world milk, buttermilk, carbonated water or even cottage cheese is added to yogurt and water, as well as various spices such as toasted ground cumin, etc. Making ayran can become a real culinary journey in the kitchen if you decide to discover how it is prepared in different parts of the world.
