Sweet Lassi

Known as the summer drink in northern India, you will find exclusive lassi joints all busy with serving this in earthern glasses known as Khullads. With the mercury reaching almost a 100 degrees on peak heat days, this drink can stave off heat strokes and keep you cool. You can check this recipe on the Fox news website.

One interesting story from Punjab runs that the local lassi shops modified electric motors and parts from washing machine manufacturers and turned them into whisking their daily gallons of lassi. To make it creamier you can use greek yogurt that gives it a smoother feel. Mango lassi, which is another variation of this original version is very popular in the west.
