Lassi, widely used in the Indian subcontinent during the hot summer months, is the most refreshing, smooth yoghurt drink you can think of. I must say that your summer joy is not complete, if you have not sipped a glass of Lassi!
Even if you are tempted, do not gulp down the whole glass in one go! Just sip slowly and experience the real bliss of this silky smooth drink that instantly cools you down and refreshes you to the core.
Getting the proportions right is the key to achieve the right consistency of this amazing drink. When added too much water, for example, the silky smooth texture vanishes. If you do not add ice cubes into the blender jar, the churning will not give the right chill. It should all come together in the right proportions to have the most delightful Lassi in your glass!
Plain or Greek style, any yogurt will do, but to taste the right Lassi, you must opt for thick, full-fat yoghurt or curd. Even though you add some water, once churned in the blender, it will come out smooth and silky. And, remember to drop the froth left in the blender on the top of the drink before serving!
There are other delicious versions of Lassi and I will publish how to make strawberry lassi and mango lassi recipes soon.
|Full fat plain or Greek-style yoghurt or plain curd||1 cup|

Let’s churn it:
- In a blender jar drop all the ingredients together
