Well, who does not like a refreshing glass on a hot summer day?
We all love cucumber lassi.
Yes, cucumber buttermilk is a healthy, refreshing drink. The cooling summer drink can be savored during winters as well. At least, I can do that, for I love everything curd :)
Cucumber is nature's gift for summers. It has cooling properties and helps bring down our body temperatures during summers. It is primarily eaten raw in salad form. In south India, they make cucumber pachadi as well, which I must say tastes yum. I plan to make it soon and shall post the recipe for you all.
