My Very Own Summer Yogurt Cooler (Indian Lassi)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Anu_N

To beat the heat of the Indian summer, you gotta have something that is light and refreshing that'll cool you down. Lassi is very popular in India, and is a salted yogurt drink, mixed with some seasonings. This is a great accompaniment for a light lunch consisting of salad and fruit. Try it!

Okay, I'll admit to preferring a sweet lassi especially after trying another spiced lassi on this site. This one is actually drinkable and it kind of grows on you. I actually might make this again - which is high praise indeed. My toddler tried it and while she shuddered from the ice cold water, she didn't spit it out. These days a neutral reaction is a good thing lol.

  4. Alternately, you can double or triple this recipe and store it in the refrigerator, it'll keep for a day at least.
  5. Before serving, stir it once, as the seasonings tend to settle at the bottom.
