Lassi is a popular, traditional, yogurt-based drink; it originates in India’s Punjab region. Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices, and sometimes, fruit. 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. Mango lassi is gaining popularity worldwide. It is widely available in UK, Malaysia and Singapore, and in many other parts of the world.
