If you are travelling in India at this time of the year then one of the many things that I recommend doing in India is drinking the popular Indian drink the “Lassi”. The lassi is something like a milk shake or a smoothie with yogurt, milk, water and exotic spices. Sometimes fruit is also added to it. The typical lassi is very popular in the summer months and often served in clay pots called “Kullhad” or steel glasses. Lassi is made by mixing yogurt, milk, water and the other ingredients and giving it a good churn. Watch the video below to see how lassi is made!
