Lassis are so beautiful to drink, they deserve special glassware. Enjoy!

A lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, often spices and sometimes, fruit. Traditional lassi (also known as salted lassi, or simply, lassi) is a savoury drink, flavoured with ground and roasted spices. Sweet lassi, however, contains sugar or fruits, instead of spices. Also there is a salted mint lassi that is highly favoured in Bangladesh.

Cumin Lassi is a much-loved beverage of Rajasthan. It is ubtly flavoured with dry roasted cumin seeds and limes or lemons. The zest of the citrus is often added to the milk before making yoghurt, and the oils infuse with it as the milk warms.

Lassis are enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment, mostly taken with lunch.
