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.
