Lassi is a cooling and refreshing drink to have in the summers. It is a yogurt based drink and very popular in the northern parts of India. Lassi's are either sweet or savory.
Sweet Lassi is made by churning yogurt along with sugar, ground cardamom and saffron(extra richness).

1) Make sure the yogurt is not sour.(very important)
2) Water can be added to dilute the Lassi.(I have not added water as I wanted it to be thick)
3) Try to use hand mixer/whisk to churn the lassi as it provides a unique taste and frothy texture when compared to a blender.

1) Yogurt / Curd - 1/2 Cup
2) Sugar - 2 Tbsp (as per taste)
3) Ground Cardamom - 1/2 Tsp
4) Saffron/ Kesar - a pinch (optional)
5) Ice cubes
1) In a bowl, add the yogurt, sugar, ground cardamom, saffron and beat it using a hand mixer.
2) Then add ice cubes and beat it till turns frothy.
3) Pour it in a glass and sprinkle some saffron on top and serve.
