The idea of the drink was to provide a refreshing relief to the people who toiled the day in the sun. The whisked yoghurt was mixed with water and sugar and served chilled. The best part is that lassi can be sweet or salty, depending upon your taste. This delicious drink recipe is prepared from a combination of yogurt, cardamom seeds, milk, ice cubes and dry fruits.
