Lassi is a proper traditional yoghurt based drink. It is a blend of yoghurt, water, spices, dry fruits and sometimes tropical fruits. In summers, the most frequently made drink at my place is Mango Lassi. Another yoghurt based thin savory drink commonly made in India is Chaas. Lassi is a sweeter and a thicker version which can be relished by adding various flavors to it.

There are different variants of lassi, thin sweet lassi, salty lassi, mango lassi, strawberry lassi and several others that depend upon the fancy imagination and experimental abilities of the vendor.  I, in particular, like dry fruit lassi, which is a thick version of lassi loaded with lots of dry nuts like fig, almonds, pistachios etc.
