Salted Lassi is a 10 rupee (15 cents) drink that Indians love, particularly in the morning. You can find it at most breakfast bars around Bangalore. It is drunk as a refresher and is considered to have good health properties.
- 1/2 c. yogurt
- 2 tbs. fresh coriander
- 1 tsp. ginger, rough chopped
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add about 2 cups water to dilute.
Makes about 3 cups
Note: This drink is definitely an acquired taste. The salt makes it tart, the ginger pretty strong and the overall texture something not quite like a smoothy, but also not milk. I’m afraid neither one of us enjoyed it much.
