Yoghurt Cucumber Lassi

Cucumber is always considered as the best source of coolness during the hot summer months.  In India, it is the most popular cooling agent during a hot sunny day.  Though I never liked cucumber personally, I tasted this juice at one of my friends place when I visited them one hot summer evening and it was amazing.

What I used:

Cucumber : 1 medium sized 
Yoghurt : 1 cup
Water : 3/4 cup
Sugar : as required
Mint (Pudina) : 7 or 8 leaves

How I did:
  • Wash, peel and cut cucumber into big chunks.
  • In a juicer jar of a mixer grinder, add cucumber chunks, pudina leaves and sugar.  Juice them into a smooth paste.  Add water if required.
  • Add yoghurt and the remaining water and run on pulse to be combined well.
  • Chill before serving.
Note :You can also make in a mixer grinder or with a blender. If so, do not forget to strain it in a strainer. You may increase or decrease the quantity of yoghurt used as per your preference.
