It has been a shock horror moment when I realised that after having been in India for just over 2 weeks I had yet to try their popular drink, Lassi.

I had a special one with saffron and cinnamon. Delicious doesn’t even begin to describe it. I looked around to all the others who had gone t the same corner cafĂ© for the same reasons as me. They seemed so shocked to see me and were all eagerly staring (more than I was used to). I couldn’t work out if it was just because I was a white girl in their local gaff or whether it was because I was inhaling my yoghurt drink so fast.

I have a funny feeling that now I will be having Lassi for breakfast, lunch and dinner on a regular basis.
