Today’s post is How To Make Lassi Recipe with step by step pics and a Short YouTube video. This Sweet Lassi Recipe is such a refreshing drink, it lowers the body heat and it’s very famous in Punjab and Northern parts of India. Even after a heavy meal, this lassi can be had for easy digestion. It is completely different from the Neer Mor/ Spiced Buttermilk and Masala Chaas, though curd is used for all the recipes, each one is different by its taste and ingredients (if interested click the highlighted words to read the recipes). I used Homemade Curd, also, use fresh, thick and well-set curd for a creamy Lassi. Another important tip is never beat or blend the curd, it should be whisked to get frothiness.
