Updated: Neeru Majjige – Spicy Yogurt Lassi + Mint

We had lots and lots of Mint/Pudina during summer. I made all kinds of dishes using Mint/Pudina. We also constantly made Pudina/Mint Lassi almost every weekend during the summer.

The ingredients for Mint/Pudina Lassi are quite simple.

  • Yoghurt – 1 cup
  • Water – 1 cup
  • 15- 20 Mint leaves washed
  • 1/2 inch Ginger – optional
  • Salt to taste

Blend all the above ingredients and serve immediately.

Lassi is made by blending yogurt with water, salt, and spices until frothy. Here is a simple, spicy, yet very delicious Lassi. If you don’t want to blend than just mix all these ingredients well, you should still be able to get all the flavors. You can make this Lassi within minutes. This is a refreshing drink when chilled during summer.


  1. 1 cup yogurt or curd
  2. 2 cup water
  3. 3-4 curry leaves
  4. 1 green chilli ( optional)
  5. 1 inch ginger finely grated
  6. 3-4 leaves of cilantro
  7. Salt to taste


Put all the above ingredients in your blender and blend until frothy. Enjoy anytime of the day. I have 2 tall Lassi already ready, do you want some? 🙂
