Lassi recipes

At My Dhaba, let me feature Lassi first, which is the most popular chilled yogurt drink of the people in especially northern part of India. It is a very healthy and nutritious milk shake. The main ingredient in any lassi is yogurt or curd. The thickness of it depends on the ratio of yogurt to water. Try the following recipes which are flavored differently. Enjoy!

Let me know your feedbacks on these and/or about your experiments and variations with lassi flavors.
