Lassi are yogurt-based shakes in either sweet or salted flavors. The most common flavors include mango, rose water, and plain sugar sweetened lassi. Lassis originate from India.

Traditional salty (namkin) lassi[edit]

Combine all ingredients except ice in blender and blend until smooth. Then add ice and continue blending until frothy.

Mild salty lassi[edit]

Here is one possible recipe for a Salty Lassi:

  • 250 mL (1 cup) full-fat yogurt
  • 250 mL (1 cup) chilled milk
  • 1 teaspoon (4g) cumin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons lime or lemon juice
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon (2-4g) salt
  • 100 mL (½ cup) ice cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon mint (finely crumbled, dried; optional)
  • small pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Dry-roast cumin seeds by cooking them over low heat in small pan until you can smell the seasoning, about 2 to 3 minutes. Cool and grind. In blender, blend cumin seed powder with yoghurt, milk, lemon juice, salt and ice cubes. Optionally scatter with crumbled mint, and a small pinch of cayenne if for piquancy. Serve chilled. (4 servings)

Sweet (mithi) lassi[edit]

Combine all ingredients except ice in blender and blend until smooth. Then add ice and continue blending until frothy.

Sweet mango lassi[edit]
