Mint Masala Lassi

pudhina masala laassi 2

Beat the heat with this yoghurt and mint cooler.

I have used dried and crushed mint leaves but you may muddle a few fresh mint sprigs. If you like the flavour of ginger, muddle a bit of it along with mint leaves.

The rest of the masalas can be of your choice – salt, black salt, cumin powder, chaat masala or even a pinch of paprika.

I like to keep the consistency of the lassi water thin. It feels cooling to drink in the hot weather. But you may make it like a thick shake as well.
