Lassi recipes?

Hey there; first time in the Indian/South Asian Board, here.

I've got an Indian friend who loves cooking (as do I) and among the things we've tried is of course Lassi... now, I wanted to look for new recipes and thought there was probably no better place than here.

So, please go wild! I'm hoping you'll post some not-very–traditional recipes (unless they're salted because I've never had salted Lassi so those are all fair game) so far I've tried Mango Lassi, Sweet Lassi and my first "experiment" was Lúcuma Lassi (which by the way is superb)

Thanks in advance!

  1. Well I got impatient so I went into the kitchen and decided to try a salty mango Lassi.


    1/2 cup yoghurt
    1/4 cup water
    3/8 cup mango pulp
    1/4 teaspoon (a very tiny one, think espresso) salt and it was still a dash too much.
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom seeds
    4 ice cubes (the yoghurt and water weren't very cold)

    I blended it all together and got a bit more than 1 glass, it was godly!

      1 cup chilled plain fresh yogurt.
      1 cup cold water.
      Salt to taste.
      Ice cubes.
      Chopped coriander.
      Chaat masala.

      Blend water, salt and curd.
      Add ice cubes.
      Sprinkle chaat masala and chopped coriander on top.

      Not rocket science and just great now, with the sweltering heat!

      PS In our family, a straw would float , its that thick!
