Ten minutes later, you are sitting on your porch with a tall glass of this lassi in one hand and a romantic novel on the other hand. This is the way I like to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
You could come to my home at 2 am on a Saturday morning and you would see a huge jar of this lassi sitting pretty in the fridge. There is never a time in our home when there is no lassi.
So, why is lassi so popular?

For me, I love the cooling effect it has on me. Florida is known for its theme parks, but, it is also known for it unrelenting, overbearing summer heat!
A glass of this lassi after being in the oppressive heat can be exactly what I need. It cools me from the inside out!
The key to this recipe is the cumin. If you can find roasted cumin powder, use that. Roasting cumin brings out all the intensity of cumin.
You can also make your own roasted cumin powder. Heat a small skillet pan at medium heat and add 2 Tbsp of cumin. Roast for a few minutes and then grind them in a coffee blender. Make sure they are ground very fine.

Making Salty Lassi
1) In a bowl, add the 3 cups of yogurt. I like to use homemade yogurt, but, store bought is fine too.
2) Add 1 tsp of salt and 1 Tbsp cumin powder. Add both to taste, however, I recommend 1-2 Tbsp of cumin powder
3) Mix with a spoon
4) Add 1 cup water to the bowl. I like my Lassi on the thick side. However, you can add extra water, if you like thin lassi
5) Using a hand mixer, mix the ingredients. Use low speed to avoid splashing
6) Mix until it is frothy
Place the lassi in a pitcher and place in the fridge. Serve after an hour in the fridge. You can add ice if you want to consume it immediately.
