Mint lassi

Written by: 7aum Suvai

Lassi is a popular and traditional yogurt based drink, originally from Indian state of Punjab. It is prepared by blending yogurt with water, salt and spices until frothy. Traditional lassi (also known as salted lassi or simply lassi) is a savory drink sometimes flavored with ground roasted cumin seeds. Sweet lassi on the other hand is blended with sugar or fruits instead of spices. Here is a lassi with mint leaves and cumin powder.
