The Buttermilk Company helps you make authentic, fresh Indian meals in 5 minutes by just adding hot water! Our products are vegan, preservative free, and non-GMO.

We've changed a lot in the last 4 months! Most exciting: four new dishes, new packaging to include nutrition facts + spice levels, double the portions in each packet, and subscriptions!

  • Pros: 

    Variety, Taste, Packaging



    I'm loving my various buttermilk orders. The Upma is my favorite and the khichdi is slowly catching up too. I cannot wait for more home food to be available :)

  • Pros: 

    Ease of cooking, storage, authentic taste, no preservatives


    Sodium content

    Buttermilk is an life-saver for the average working young professional. I recently pulled the Chana Masala packet out of the freezer, having had traveled a ton recently with nothing to eat at home, and was delighted by the authentic Indian taste and fresh taste even after having frozen the product! Loving the new pack options and cannot wait to try them! My only con with the product, as a fitness and health nut, is the mid to high sodium content. This doesn't bother me much as the food is SO YUMMY, but would love to see Buttermilk launch some more "health" conscious options for people like me who may be watching their sodium levels!

Hi PH! I'm super excited to relaunch Buttermilk here + share all of our exciting updates with you. First things first, we're offering a special 15% discount on all first orders of $30+ with the code 'PHBUTTERMILK15' ( We've made some pretty significant changes while keeping the core value of our product the same: help people feel at home wherever they are. Since we crowdsource our recipes from real people in the community, rest assured that our food is 100% authentic + will always give you that home-cooked taste. Most importantly, we've listened to our customers and delivered: - Double the portion sizes in each packet for the same price. - Variety! We introduced Chana Masala, Coconut Chutney, Quinoa, and Brown Rice last month, and have 8 more recipes in the pipeline. - Subscriptions to your favorite dishes (no minimums) for every 1-4 weeks. All subscriptions get 10% off and free shipping on every delivery. - New packaging that highlights nutrition facts and spice levels. - Recommended packs to help you decide what to get based on your preferences + lifestyle In other exciting company news, we were accepted into Y Combinator's S18 batch this past May! It's been a crazy fun summer + I can't believe it's almost coming to a close already. We have more exciting things coming up soon, so thank you for being a part of the Buttermilk journey!

@mitraraman Hey Mitra, it looks like you meant to put 'PHBUTTERMILK15' instead of 'PHBUTTERMILK5', just wanted it to give you the heads up. I'm putting in my first order for the Buttermilk Suite #2 right now! :)
Mitra RamanMaker@mitraraman · CEO, The Buttermilk Company
@alexabdo1 OMG you're right!! Thank you for pointing that out, just updated!!!
Alex Abdo@alexabdo1
@mitraraman No problem! Also another thing I noticed: when I use the 15% off, it negates the Free Shipping on my order for the Buttermilk Suite #2 and actually ends up costing more than not using the discount at all ($5.70 saved with discount, but $5.95 shipping)
