Meatless Monday : Salted Mint Lassi | Mint with yogurt , healthy thirst quencher



After almost 6 months, it was a pretty warm day here. More than body it's my mind that insisted me to go for something chill. Fresh mint was calling me too. Desi mind was referring to our good old lassi.





I've always loved milk and milk products.Yogurt and butter milk are part my life ( rather part of every Indian ). In India,We make variety of drinks with yogurt. Some are sweet while others are salty.But this is the simplest of all and guilt free too.



During summer , chill butter milk will be kept in a mud pot to help people quench their thirst in every house hold. All you need is yogurt / curd and fresh herbs and you can make variety of drinks. I hope to share some of my other favorites here soon .



Ingredients

Plain Yogurt / curd ........................ 1 cup
Ice cubes ................................... few
Fresh mint ................................ 10 leaves
Fresh ginger ............................ 1/8 tsp , grated
Himalayan Pink Salt / salt ........... to taste
Roasted cumin powder .............. a pinch

Method

Wash the mint leaves and blend with yogurt , ice cubes,salt, ginger.
Pour in serving glasses and add few ice cubes.
Sprinkle some cumin powder on top.
Garnish with mint leaves and enjoy.
