Traditional Summertime Beverage
Lassi is a traditional North Indian, yoghurt-based drink. It is prepared in two different styles: salty and sweet. Today we are preparing the salted version of this beverage.
It is simple and quick to make—all you need to do is blend the yoghurt, some spices and water. Voila!
It is a very refreshing beverage for the hot summer months here in India. It is also very healthy, as it helps promote digestive health. Do try it and share your experience.
