Lassi is a known drink for every Indian mostly fond by North Indians. Very simple and quick drink to make in a snap.Best during hot summer’s, this keeps one’s body cool and hydrated.After having a glass full of Lassi you won’t need to have your meal,it’s a small power pack meal in itself. While making lassi do keep in mind that curd should not be sour as it will spoil the taste of lassi.
