Yes, we can substitute buttermilk for milk in recipe.
If you're asking for a buttermilk substitute, place one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar in a one cup measure. Fill to one cup mark with regular milk and let sit for five minutes.

Yes. Buttermilk was originally the milk left over after churning butter. Today it is actually a product of skim milk with organisms (yeasts) added to it to get the same flavor and creaminess. A typical substitute for buttermilk in a recipe is 1 cup of milk (whole or reduced fat) and 1 tablespoon lemon juice for every cup of buttermilk needed.
