Punjabi Lassi
Punjabi lassi / Sweet Lassi Recipe
Written by Jayashree
Published on August 17, 2015

Lassi is a popular Indian drink made using yoghurt. It is usually served sweet though salted version may be made. It is ideal drink during summer. Punjabi  lassi is very popular and tasty, second to nothing. Today, I present to you this version of  Punjabi Lassi.

Benefits of lassi:

  • It is a coolant to the body.
  • It is ideal drink during summer.
  • It can be easily made at home. Less fat may be used in it.
  • It can be consumed by people of all ages.
  • It is a good source of probiotics.
  • It aids in digestion as it contains lactobacillus.

Difference between buttermilk and lassi:

Buttermilk and lassi is often confused. Technically, buttermilk is the residue that is left out after churning butter from cream. However, lassi is made using thick yoghurt. It is churned with a blender to make lassi. Lassi is usually thicker and has more fat content in it.  Buttermilk is thinner in consistency.  Lassi is more acidic than buttermilk. Spicy buttermilk is usually served after lunch in many states as Gujarat and Rajasthan.Lassi is from North India and usually served during breakfast.

Different Kind of Lassi :

Over the years, I have recreated  different varieties of lassi during summer.  Cucumber lassi is spicy and I love it. Strawberry lassi is ideal to serve when you have a couple of berries at home.

About the event:

This is an old post which I have redone now. Sending this to our fortnightly event Foodies_Redoing Old Post 40,  we work on an old post together. Some posts written earlier need to be changed with better pictures, text or sometimes both. Thus, we as a group, work on one post every fortnight.

    I love thick creamy lassi but not the sweet type. I prefer either salty and if I make the fruity ones, I don’t add sugar to mine. Adding cream makes it so much more special.
