Thai Lassi/ Thai Flavored Buttermilk
Blazing Sun... Loooong Days.... Sweltering Heat... This all reminds me of Summers.
And summers mean you need refreshing mock tails now and then to replenish your energy. I am no different. But instead of going the sugary way and sipping on calorie laden colas and drinks I prefer home made mock tails and yogurt based traditional drinks.
One such drink is our very own Indian Lassi. Lassi or Buttermilk is a popular, traditional, yogurt-based drink. It is a blend of yogurt, water, spices or sugar and sometimes even fruits.
Lassis are enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather natural refreshment.
Today I made Lassi with a Thai Twist. A very unique and unusual fusion. For me fusion means when two distinctive flavors melts into each other and yet stand out. This Buttermilk or Lassi is the perfect example of that.
I love Thai cuisine. The flavors of lemongrass and lime leaves you with fresh breeze. Lassi or buttermilk itself is very refreshing and when thai flavors get incorporated into it, it becomes all the more sumptuous.
This Lassi/ Thai Buttermilk is simple, easy, energetic, refreshing, rejuvenating, cooling, thirst quencher and lemony. What else do you need in a recipe? It's bliss-in-a-glass.
It’s a must try recipe.
