A simple savory lassi generally has plain yogurt, water, spices and salt. This is generally the base of any savory lassi recipe. Lassi is a great soothing drink during the summer time.
Today i have added cucumber, coriander leaves, green chilly (optional), ginger and salt to the lassi. Cucumber has great health benefits. It keeps you hydrated and flushes out the toxins. Its helps to reduce the acidity too. The addition of cucumber in the Lassi, helps to cool down the palate after a spicy meal.
In addition to the above method, i also make lassi with spinach and kale. These greens have a good amount of vitamin A and C, they also have a good amount of calcium in them. I will post these recipes soon.
