Cucumber & Carrots Chia Savory Breakfast Pudding – Chia Savory Pudding

Chia is my recent favorite for breakfast, though i have tried it as dessert with coconut milk and fruit options many times. But i do not prefer sweet things for my breakfast, i need spicy, tangy deliciousness for breakfast! So, i experimented with chia and buttermilk. Oh my the first time i tried it with turmeric mint chutney it was out of the world. From that time, i have chia pudding once a week. It is a simple no-fuss breakie. Just soak it up overnight, add the chopped veggies, add some chutney and you are done.

The chutney makes it more interesting, change your chutney and you will have a different flavor everytime. I have even had it with some chana masala, paneer masala, anything spicy works like magic.

3 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup buttermilk (use 1/2 cup curd and 1/2 cup water whisked well together)
1/2 a carrot, thinly sliced into roundels
1/2 a cucumber, thinly sliced into roundels
2 tbsp mint chutney

salt to taste (optional, i never add)


  • Soak chia seeds in buttermilk overnight or atleast 3-4 hours minimum.  I usually soak 4 hours minimum. I soak it around 7 in the morning and have it for breakfst around 10:30 or 11 am.
  • Once the chia is ready, there is nothing more to do. Add mint chutney to the bowl, mix it well, add chopped cucumber and carrots to it. Mix well and enjoy.
