How to make the Salted Lassi

  1. Take thick curd in a deep bowl. If the curd is not thick, the Salted lassi (Namkeen lassi) will be very watery. Use chilled curd for a cold lassi or if you are using room temperature curd then refrigerate till serving.
  2. Whisk the curd till it is smooth.
  3. To this add 2-3 tbsp of water, depending on how thick you want the Salted Lassi.
  4. Then add cumin seeds powder to this. This powder is made by first roasting cumin seeds till fragrant and then grounded into a powder. Roasted cumin seeds powder has a much better, earthy taste.
  5. Then add the black salt. Black salt gives a unique taste. 
  6. Finally add the salt. We have added 1/2 tsp of salt. You can either reduce or increase the amount of salt as per your liking.
  7. Mix Salted Lassi, well using a whisk so that everything is incorporated well.
  8. Pour Salted Lassi, into glasses.
  9. Serve Salted Lassi chilled alongside hot punjabi aloo paratha or any other hearty punjabi meal.
