Salted Cucumber Lassi – Yogurt Drink


Come summers and all you wanna do is have lots n lots of chilled shakes/drinks and the first thing that comes to my mind is a fresh n chilled “Lassi(Yogurt Drink)a  traditional drink from India, made from yogurt, water and sweet/salt. We do have many versions of lassi but my personnel favorite is the salted lassi with some kind of flavor. 
Here’s the recipe of “Chilled Salted Cucumber Lassi” which is extremely simple, equally delicious and needs two main ingredients which most of us have in our kitchen.
Also, Yogurt, Cucumber and Cumin are all cooling agents hence great for our digestion specially in summers. It’s also a great beverage for people who follow a low calorie diet (Just substitute with fat free yogurt)
