Lassi is a traditional summer drink from the state of Punjab.A cooling and refreshing drink that one could rely on for summer.Lassies are very easy to make at home,the only thing to take care of is the making of curd.The curd that we use for lassi should be thick and sweet.
Sweet Lassi does bring me some good old memories of my school days.There was a small shop in Parry’s corner (Chennai) near St.Antony’s church where they serve chilled lassi with crushed pistachio and rose essence. After school we just run to this shop every friday for this refreshing drink which is the best way to indulge for summer in Chennai.
Such a delicious and cool easy drink to make at home.
