Cucumber lassi recipe - Kakdichi lassi

Cucumber lassi or kakdichi recipe - We all Indians suffer from scorching heat and very often make some cool drinks such as lassi, sharbat, lemonade, fruit juice, panna, etc. to beat the heat. Whatever the fruit I bring I blend it to a smooth puree, chill it in the refrigerator and serve as a drink. Vegetables like tomato, carrot and cucumber are also used to make cool drinks. These drinks not only refreshes and cools the body, but also hydrates the body. A glass full of cucumber lassi is a perfect cool drink that one can enjoy during summer season and is a much healthier drink in comparison to carbonated drinks. It hardly takes few minutes to prepare if you chilled the yogurt well in advance. Before you make the lassi, preferably keep the cucumber and yogurt in the refrigerator at least for an hour, so that, cold lassi can be prepared instantly. Try out this thirst quencher lassi with all goodness of cucumber and yogurt.
