Sweet Lassi or Salty Chhach: What’s your choice?

It is summer time and this Indian season has its own special savory drink – Lassi. Made with thick and high quality Yogurt, it refreshes your body in a way that none of the aerated drinks can! No wonder than that whether you are in the Northern or the Eastern states of India, you will find Lassi shops always crowded with people. On a broader level there are two types of Lassi – Sweet and Salty. And both of them are very popular across India. While both these drinks have their own distinctive tastes and benefits, none can claim superiority over the other. Today we would try to analyze the highlights of lassi and chhach.

If you have a sweet tooth then this is the drink to opt for during those days of searing summer heat. Sweet lassi contains the same health benefit as Yogurt. Prepared with a couple of spoons of sugar, the lassi can be thick and heavy. Modern day sweet lassis come in various flavors. Their tastes are enriched with rose water, lemon juice, strawberry, mango or other fruit juices. A glass of sweet lassi is often a heavy drink which keeps you filled for many following hours. It is also known to cool down the body, and thus it is a healthy drink to have if you are venturing out on a summer day.

On the other hand, if you have a liking for the tangy or salty taste then a glass of Jeera Chhach would be an ideal accompaniment with your meals. It is a less heavy drink, than the sweet lassi, but carries more health benefits. One of the most prominent health benefits of chhach is its capability to aid the digestive process. It is traditionally had with meals and mostly Indians love to end their fulsome lunch or dinner with a bottoms-up drink of chhach.

Conclusion

So, as we see above the sweeter variety of lassi is a standalone drink that can instantly cool down and keep your body well hydrated. It is rather thick and heavy. On the other end, Chhach is more of an accompaniment with heavy meals. It is well known for aiding the digestive process and helps you stay away from problems of the digestive tract.
