Summers are approaching and we need to keep ourselves hydrated. Drink lot of water which will keep your throat moist. I decided to treat my family with delicious and refreshing Cucumber and Coriander Lassi. Hmm … could not stop at one glass and they just loved it. I love spiced Lassi compared to the sweet ones. Cucumber and yogurt act as coolents and when added to lassi ,it makes it more nutritious and delicious and Roasted Cumin adds a nice flavor too. Lassi is a thick yogurt based drink which originated in Northern part of India.You have salt and sweet lassi. and Fruit puree is used to make sweet lassi. There are many variations of Lassi these days.I prefer salted lassi with some spices but like some selected sweet lassi.
