Salted Mint Lassi | Namkeen Lassi

a refreshing summer drink / after meal beverage using curd & mint leaves




Lassi is an age-old Punjabi after meal beverage which is known for its numerous benefits such as aiding digestion, providing calcium and vitamin D and many more. Apart from that, it can be relished in hot summers because of its cooling properties from Curd. And this yogurt / curd based beverage can be salty as well as sweet. I love to have salty kind of lassi mostly where as my husband loves to have both salty as well as sweet. One of the favorite and most demanded lassi of my two boys (husband and son) is the chocolate lassi. Lassi is only one such drink that other than being a healthy beverage, also serves as a perfect refreshing drink for people of all ages. 





Well, today's post is a lassi kind of cold beverage as Salted Mint Lassi. From the name itself one can guess this is a salty lassi and this is my kind of lassi 😉 Here the lassi is flavored with freshly plucked mint leaves from my small kitchen garden along with some roasted cumin powder and black salt. Although I prefer to make lassi using a hand whisk or even using a madhani (traditional wooden hand beater for lassi), but here I have used an electric blender to make this salted lassi.




I have simply add everything to a blender jar and blend for 1-2 minutes to mix everything well and a frothy layer comes out. That's it ! Then its is ready to serve without any pressure in hand (usually happens when we use hand whisk / madhani). This lassi is also named as Namkeen Lassi. Mint lassi is a great compliment to any meal, especially during summer. It is there in every Indian household during these hot periods. Super simple recipe it is and no cooking is required to make this. So do try this refreshing salted mint lassi !
