DIRECTIONS

  • If using whole cumin seeds, dry roast them lightly on a dry skillet until dark brown. Pound or powder them coarsely. Use a pinch of this powder and save the rest for use in Indian curries or something else.
  • Bruise the cilantro with the salt to bring out its flavor.
  • Shake or whisk buttermilk and water together. Add grated ginger, cumin powder (if using), pepper, cilantro/salt mixture and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Make it a little frothy by pouring from one cup to another in a swift motion. A hand blender can also be used. This drink is usually not as frothy or thick as a lassi.
  • If you desire a thicker, frothier consistency, blend buttermilk with ice and then add the other ingredients. Do not add the water.
  • This drink is supposed to be watery. The amount of ginger and cumin is a personal preference. Add as little or as much as you desire.
