Lassi, a great Indian yoghurt drink

Simplest Lassi | Raita Lassi | Indian Yoghurt Drink | Vegetarian | Life Time of Cooking

When you are feeling tired, when you have celebrated too much, when you need comforting or nurturing, when your digestion is playing up, when the sun has been too hot, or the food too hot, or just when you feel like one, you need a simple Lassi. Could I say, the best Lassi?

A Lassi is an Indian sweet or savoury drink made from a yoghurt or buttermilk base, perhaps with water, and with flavourings. The flavourings are either fruits or spices. You may of course know the ubiquitous Mango Lassi, and perhaps the Salt Lassi (great in very hot weather).

This recipe is very simple, but very delicious. Enjoy!
