Lassi is a popular yogurt-based drink from the Indian subcontinent. It is made by blending yogurt with water, milk, spices, and sometimes fruit. The lassi was traditionally made with a wooden churner, but nowadays it is more commonly made with a blender.
The history of the lassi is unclear, but it is thought to date back to ancient India. The drink was originally made with plain yogurt, but over time, different regions began to add their own unique ingredients and flavors. For example, in Punjab, lassi is often made with spices like cardamom, cloves, and black pepper. In Rajasthan, lassi is often made with sugar and saffron.
Lassi became popular in the West in the 1970s, when Indian immigrants began opening restaurants in cities like London and New York. Today, lassi is enjoyed by people all over the world.
