Tips for serving the best Lassi Recipe:

Frequently Asked Questions:  

  1. Is lassi good for weight loss?

 In Ayurveda medicine, lassi “cools” the digestive system, aiding gut function.

And from a modern medical perspective, lassi is a fermented food that contains many healthy bacteria, or probiotics, which decrease bloating and reduce inflammation—two key contributors
to weight loss.

 2. How can I thicken my lassi?

You can also add 2 cups of chilled milk, instead of water.

The consistency of this lassi is neither thin nor thick. If you want a thick lassi, then add 1 to 1.5 cups water.

 3. What should we do if our curd is not set?

If your kitchen got a bit cool while the yogurt sat, fermentation may have slowed down.

It hasn’t stopped, but you may need to give it more time to thicken. Place the yogurt in a

warm location to speed up the process. Your oven is a good place to let the yogurt sit overnight
