Lassi is a popular, traditional, yogurt-based drink; it originates in India’s Punjab region. Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices, and sometimes, fruit. Traditional lassi (a.k.a., “salted lassi”, or simply, “lassi”) is a savory drink, sometimes flavored with ground and roasted cumin. Sweet lassi, however, contains sugar or fruits, instead of spices. Lassis are enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment, mostly taken with lunch. With a little turmeric powder mixed in, it is also used as a folk remedy for gastroenteritis.
