cucumber-mint-lassi-recipe
When it is summer, it’s always good to keep your body cool from inside. Drinking buttermilk is one way to do so. Being south Indian, we drink neer mor often. But these days for a change often have salted lassi as we both love the flavour. I have roasted cumin powder (bhuna jeera) always, so it’s really handy for me to add black salt, cumin powder and have the flavourful drink. I had one organic cucumber sitting in fridge for few days and I was thinking to try this one for a change. Got fresh  mint too, so added it to the lassi for refreshing taste. Vj is not a big fan of cucumber so I had myself all Winking.

Other summer drinks : Masala chaas, Masala coke, Mango lassi, salted lassi, sweet lassi, masala mor, ice lemon tea

Cucumber mint lassi recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Drink
Prep Time: 5 minutes  |  Cook time: 0 mins   Serves: 2

Click here for cup measurements

 Ingredients 

Yogurt/ curd – 2 cups

Cucumber – 1, small

Mint leaves – 2 tbsp, packed

Green chilli – 1 (optional)

Cumin seeds, roasted, powdered – 1/2 tsp

Black salt – 1/2 tsp

Asafoetida – a generous pinch

Salt – As needed



Method

  1. Place chopped cucumber, mint and chilli in the blender and grind it well.
  2. 1-grind
  3. Add rest of the ingredients and blend well. Filter it if you do not like the texture of cucumber.
  4. 2-grind

Notes

  • You can add a piece of ginger and skip green chilli as green chilli would add heat to the lassi.
  • Do not add more mint leaves as it will over power and a raw green smell will be there.
  • Make sure to use clean ingredients as we are consuming raw.
  • Use chilled curd and consume as soon as you prepare the lassi.
  • I first did not filter, but I did not like the texture, so filter and had, then it was absolutely fine.

Best for summer as well as cool with cucumber and mint.
