These hot days demand cold, cooling drinks. For the moment, I am making a lassi first thing in the morning. Such a healthy start to the day.
A Lassi is a yoghurt based drink, blended with spices, and can be savoury or sweet. Sweet lassi has fruits as an integral ingredient. Savory or salt lassi has spices and possibly vegetables, like this Tomato Lassi. This is not a common lassi, so I hope you enjoy the tomato-y flavour.
