These days many fruit-based lassis are available which are easy to make at home. But this basic sweet lassi still works wonders. In Punjab this is served in big glasses with parathas, having a layer of homemade butter on top of the it. This buttery lassi is knowns as Makkhanya lassi. In general, lassi can be described as yogurt or curd whisked with some flavor (fruits, saffron or cardamom) and sweetener.

Traditionally it is prepared to beat curd in an earthen pot with a wooden whisk. Top it with some homemade “malai” (cream) and just relish. I made this in the blender and added some milk to dilute it. You can add water too, also there is no cream or homemade butter in this lassi.
