Salted Cucumber Lassi

Hot Summer has come shortening  the Spring! Hardly we could enjoy the pleasant weather of Spring and Summer forcefully has entered now! Summer holidays has started here at Bangalore Schools but the schools have started the Summer camps.. Normally, I used to go out for grocery shopping, bank works and other important works before noon and come back before 1 pm. But these days I don't feel like going out because of the scorching heat and lot of work is pending because of that.



Earlier the Bangalore weather was not humid but now it is so lot of sweating! And you should keep yourself hydrating all the times. Only water is not enough you need to add electrolytes to your drink like salt. Cucumber and curd both are very good for Summer days. So I prepared salted cucumber lassi which is just perfect for Summer. Addition of green chilli and ginger  gave a special kick to the lassi. I do not love spicy foods much so I was worried while adding the green chilli but when I had the cucumber lassi it proved me wrong and I will suggest to try this salted cucumber lassi. Here is the simple recipe of a glassful of salted cucumber recipe.
