Lassi is a proper traditional yoghurt based drink. It is a blend of yoghurt, water, spices, dry fruits and sometimes tropical fruits. In summers the most frequently made drink at my place is Mango Lassi. Another yoghurt based thin savory drink commonly made in India is Chaas. Lassi is a sweeter and a thicker version which can be relished by adding various flavors to it.
Sweet Lassi is one of the drinks me and my family relish not only in summer but always. It is so much satisfying to have it after a light meal. A nicely blended heavy dry fruit lassi also makes you skip an afternoon meal. So much filling that you actually don’t feel the necessity to eat something after that. Today in a lazy summer afternoon, me and my son decided to have a thick and creamy dry fruit lassi…. just added some chocolate shavings for him in his mug so that the kiddo enjoys it to it’s fullest.
