Lasi is often relished with a meal or as a refreshing beverage.

I usually flavor it with cardamom and some chopped nuts.

Trust me, it’s really so so thirst quenching and refreshing.

It’s creamy texture gives it an extra nourishing flavor.

Lasi can be prepared in many ways. Also you may prepare the sweet or salty version.

Also try preparing chocolate sweet lasi, mango lasi, traditional buttermilk and many other variants.

During my childhood, I never use to take curd. I always had an aversion towards it.

One day when my mom prepared lassi with just sugar in it, believe me I never knew it was curd.

I just loved the taste. From then, I never miss to drink lassi esp. after my meal.

If you are put up in a hot region where temperature is above 35 degree Celsius, I suggest you to drink lassi (thick or thin) everyday.

How to prepare Sweet Lasi?

Take a cup of thick yogurt/curd in a bowl (Store bought or homemade).

Sweet lasi curd

Whisk the curd using a hand whisk or electric whisk/beater or you can also use a blender/mixer. Whisk until NO lumps. When I use a blender, I just put it on pulse mode once or twice, not more.

After breaking the lumps, add honey or powdered sugar for sweetness. Adjust the quantity according to your preference. If you have a sweet tooth, you may add some more. I prefer just a medium level of sweet. Substituting honey for sugar is a healthier option.
