There was a television ad by one of the world’s largest marketing companies a couple of years back that told a tale of a Polish washing machine manufacturer finding out what suddenly multiplied their sales in India. A visit to a local lassi parlour revealed the machines had been resourcefully turned into lassi blenders!
True or not, the story makes a point. A popular drink in India, lassi is enjoyed as a hot weather refreshment by and large.
There are two ways of serving yoghurt based lassi: sweet and salty. Salty lassi is garnished with spices, roasted jeera being an all time favourite. Sweet lassi has, besides sugar, fruits or berries added. This recipe calls for blueberries but you are free to substitute them with any other ones.
1 l yoghurt or sourmilk
5 dl cold water (or as much as it takes to reach a preferred consistency)
6 dl blueberries
2-3 dl raw sugar (adjust the amount to your liking)
A pinch of vanilla powder
