from Extending the Table, a World Community Cookbook: Mix first 5 ingredients together. Immerse 6-8 fresh mint leaves (bruise leaves and tie ends of stalks together) into lassi. Let stand in fridge at least 5 hours to allow mint flavor to permeate lassi. Remove mint before serving.
This cold mint beverage is a variation of a common South Asian drink, often flavored with rose water. Similar drinks are served in the Middle East. Lassi is a nice accompaniment to hot spicy foods. Children wll enjoy making and drinking it as a refreshing snack. All proportions may be varied to taste.
