The first time i tasted this was at my friend Nandinis place,it was refreshing and i loved it.
I plan to make this again when I'm grilling fish or chicken and serve it as a drink appetiser for my next dinner party.Cool ha !
In many food shows i have seen Cucumber Soups and also Salted Cucumber Drinks mostly served as appetisers,it was on my to do list and finally i give it a shot.
So keeping all this in mind here is the recipe for Refreshing Cucumber (Kheera) Lassi
For 2 glasses
1 cucumber chopped (do not remove the skin)
1 cup yogurt(i use skimmed)
roasted cumin less than 1/2 tsp
pepper corn 1
black salt 1 pinch
sugar 1/2 tsp
salt 1/2 tsp
mint 2/4 leaves
Blend the cucumber,mint,black salt,regular salt and sugar,then strain it.
Now blend the ice cubes,yogurt with the strained cucumber mix,add in the spice mix.
Make sure to taste before you serve,adjust the salt and sugar to your taste.
Now serve your Cucumber Lassi chilled and sip away !
