Mint Lassi

Mint Lassi
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water

In a skillet, dry roast cumin and black pepper.

Stir frequently, until the aroma is released.

Combine cumin and pepper, along with all the other ingredients, into a blender.

Mix at high speed until mint leaves are well blended and serve.

This is a drink used in Indian culture to aid in digestion. Traditionally they use black salt which can be found in Indian food markets.

For a different taste ground cardamom or ground fennel in place of the cumin.

Try different types of yogurt: cow, sheep, goat or soy.
