A sweet lassi will freshen you up in summers
Lassi, which originates from Punjab, is a drink made from curd and diluted with water. In this, a good amount of sugar is added and is served chilled. This drink is most popular with street sellers who serve the delicious lassi with chole bhature, paranthe, aloo puri or literally any other dish you would like to pair it with!
Curd is the hero ingredient of lassi which has many health benefits, especially if consumed (in moderation) in summers. Curd is a probiotic food that is known to help aid digestion, build immunity, lowers blood pressure and facilitate weight loss. Curd is also known to be rich in calcium, vitamin B12 and phosphorus.
To make this yummy shahi lassi, you would need chilled curd, saffron, water, one scoop of vanilla ice cream, and dry fruits. Firstly take half a cup of chilled curd and add one scoop of vanilla ice cream and one-fourth cup of water. Blend this together.
