In Bangladesh, Borhani is a traditional yogurt drink served at wedding ceremonies. No occasion or ceremony will be arranged without Borhani. So, it is my pleasure to share with you the authentic recipe for Borhani.


  1. Plain Yogurt (white & sour) – 1/2 kg (1 kg = 2.2 pound)
  2. Mint Leaf (pudina leaf) paste- 1/2 teaspoon
  3. Coriander Leaf (dhania leaf) pest- 1/2 teaspoon
  4. Green chilly pest – 1/2 teaspoon
  5. Cumin powder – 3/4 teaspoon
  6. Coriander powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  7. White mustard seed powder – 3/4 teaspoon
  8. Black pepper powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  9. White pepper powder – 3/4 teaspoon
  10. Sugar – 3 teaspoon
  11. Tomato sauce- 1 teaspoon
  12. Chat salt (not normal white salt, it’s called BIT NUN) – 1/2 tea spoon
  13. Normal salt – 1/2 teaspoon (as per taste).


  1. If you see, the yogurt is very thick, then add 1 glass (normal) of water but if not then 1/2 glass of water & beat until it becomes smooth.
  2. Now strain the mint leaf paste, chilli paste, coriander paste together with some (like 3 tea spoon) water & add in yogurt.
  3. Then add the rest of the ingredients into the yogurt & mix very well.
  4. Serve cold.

Tip: You must fry all the seeds (which I mentioned above) in low flame & then you will make them into powder, so that you can get the real flavor of them.
