Lassi is a traditional Indian Beverage, made by blending yogurt with water, salt, and spices until frothy, that is enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment. Traditional lassi is salty and sometimes flavored with ground roasted cumin and chilli pepper.
Sweet lassi is a more recent invention, flavored with sugar, rosewater and/or lemon, mango, strawberry or other fruit juice. Saffron lassis, which are particularly rich, are a specialty of Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Another popular variation on the Lassi is the Mango Lassi, which is orange in color and mango flavored.
The Lassi is very popular on hot summer days where it is only made of water, salt, yoghurt and sometimes lemon.
