IMG_0810Lassi is a popular drink of India originating from the Punjab region. Traditionally it is made by blending yogurt and


water with spices or sugar. For example, a salted lassi is spiced with cumin, while just a little sugar is added to a simple lassi.

The fruited lassis are more popular in America, such as mango or strawberry.

There is also the bhang lassi where a liquid derivative of marijuana is added. This is legal in most parts of India.
