Kulhad wali Lassi for Navratri Fasting

Wish all the Readers of Asan Khana Happy Chaitra Navratri,Gudi Padawa and Ugadi.

Today is the first day of Chaitra Navratri  ,starting from today for nine days hindu goddess Durga,Lakshmi and Saraswati are worshipped.Ninth day is celebrated as Ram Navratri .
 As its quite hot here i didnt prepare the usual delicacies which are prepared for fasting instead prepared this refreshing drink ,

one sip and i was in my hometown ,the smell,the taste everything reminded me of  home and the narrow street where we used to go for the Lassi,this one wasnt creamy and thick ,but the taste was similar to the one sold in the narrow street famous for Kulhad wali Lassi,and ya guys this kulhad is from my home town :-)
