Punjabi Lassi - All Time Favourite Drink

 Lassi are the refreshing  drink not only in summer but in all seasons. Whenever I visit any lassi stall I love to have Punjabi Lassi which is thick and has mild rose essence. So I thought to share the lassi which is my all time favourite. This is so satisfying you can also serve it after meal. After meals we prefer to drink lighter lassi that is cardamom flavoured lassi.  If you have not try making lassi at home. Do try and keep me a lovely comments.
