Coriander Lassi

Last few days were spent in preparations for traveling and I am enjoying the amazing weather in Bangalore now. I am still recovering from the jet lag induced due to the 13 1/2 hour time difference in California and Bangalore time zones. Currently, I have said ta ta to my kitchen and having a great time with my parents and sister. I have few ideas in mind to try the traditional dishes with vegetables and locally available ingredients...but that will have to wait for a few days now.. I guess :)) I had a few drafts and thought of posting this lassi. I try to use a lot of coriander in my dishes as it is beneficial for overall health. We make this lassi at home during summers as my husband is a great fan of it. It is very soothing during the summer season, but due to the cold weather, we do not make this in winters. But I guess we can make it year round in India. Mint leaves can also be used to substitute coriander. I usually have this with khakra to satisfy late morning hunger pangs.

Ingredients
1/4 cup curd or 1 cup buttermilk
1/8 teaspoon jeera or cumin powder
salt for taste
3 tablespoon coriander leaves
1/8 teaspoon chaat masala powder or jal jeera powder or samahan powder


Method
Blend all the ingredients in a blender. Add ice cubes if desired.
