Lassi is not merely a drink for the summer season; it is an emotion which runs through us, the desis! This versatile drink can be consumed anytime to quench your summery thirst- gulp down the chilled and sweet version of this, malai maar ke or just opt for a thick salty-sour variant on a hot day. Whip up a glass after a meal to wash down the nosh or just cool your insides in this heat, with a dollop of fresh cream on your lassi.
Jaipur is a city with punishing heat levels and one of the epicurean ways to conquer this sweltering season is to indulge in beverages which’ll keep you satiated and quenched! On a similar note, Jaipur has this lassi shop which is over 70 years old and the other outlets in the vicinity, selling the same aren’t a match for this oldie!
Seated at MI road, Lassiwala was then the first of its kind in Jaipur, serving their frothing creamy lassi to all. Traditionally available as sweet and salty, the outlet has now also introduced a sugar-free variant of the same and people of all ages are frequenting the kiosk like there’s no tomorrow. BTW the lassi is made only with curd and ice, devoid of water so the result turns out to be a thick and velvety summery delight for you to swig!
The lassi here is popular even amidst B-town celebs like Amitabh Bacchan, Mukesh Ambani, Shilpa Shetty etc. so you can imagine the amount of craze here for this particular beverage!
