Thanks so much for posting this, Indiakitchen. I made it according to your instructions and it was absolutely wonderful, I think I'm addicted to it already! So refreshing and energising, not to mention good for digestion.

Delicious! We had this with our meal this evening but I cut the chilli down to 1. We usually have lassi with roasted cumin but it's good to have an alternative. Thanks Indiakitchen! More recipes please :)
