I don’t know, its summer or the magic of mangoes that compels me to publish two posts on mango one after the another. My post is about a yogurt based drink that is served savory or sweet. It is most popular in the Punjab region of India. It is served in the disposable clay cups that elevates its taste to the different level. Creamy, frothy texture of this sweet yogurt based drink is not only refreshing to the soul in the hot humid summers, but it is also good for stomach because of its probiotic nature.
Yes! Lassi is a phenomenal drink served either with kewra water and sugar or grounded cumin seeds, salt and dried mint. Now with the new generation and their experiments this ever young drink is served in lots of new varieties and tastes.
But when this drink is blended with mangoes it explodes your taste buds with its delightful taste and creamy texture. Mango lassi is one of the most internationally famous Indian drink. Its simple to make, elegant to serve and tastes royally delicious.
