Lassi (Punjabi: ਲੱਸੀ/لسی, Sindhi لسي, Urdu: لسی, Marathi: लस्सी, Gujarati: લસ્સી, Bengali: লস্যি,Pashto: شوملې) is a popular, traditional, yogurt-based drink. Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices and sometimes, fruit. Traditional lassi (a.k.a., "salted lassi", or simply, "lassi") is a savory drink, sometimes flavored with ground and roasted cumin. Sweet lassi, however, contains sugar or fruits, instead of spices.
In Dharmic religions, yogurt sweetened with honey is used while performing religious rituals. Less common is lassi served with milk and topped with a thin layer of clotted cream. Lassis are enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment, mostly taken with lunch. With a little turmeric powder mixed in, it is also used as a folk remedy for gastroenteritis.
