Yoghurt is such a great food it is great to start the day with some. My preference in summer is to begin with a lassi taken slowly on the balcony, watching the sun rise, before the day begins. It sure beats a coffee!
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).
