The much-loved Indian lassi is actually most often savoury, not sweet. This salty lassi is flavoured with the traditional cumin for a tasty and refreshing drink.
You may want to add just half of the ground cumin to the blender, then taste and add more cumin as desired.
I've had cumin lassi's, and I was looking forward to making my first at home. You need to love, love, L-O-V-E cumin to enjoy this. It has so much cumin that it's the only thing that I could taste. IMO it needs the cumin reduced significantly (maybe start with just 1 tsp or less) and perhaps add some mint or fresh cilantro as a complement to the cumin. Sunaina, sorry for the bad review, but this recipe just didn't work for me. - 12 Jun 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
