Our Secret to get you the best serving of Punjabi lassi!

1. To make really thick lassi, always use less liquid vs yogurt amount.

2. Because it is thick inconsistency, it is heavy and filling. But if you prefer a thin and light version then add more liquid (water or milk).  

3. The lassi could be a normal chilled in temperature for the best taste.
