When the sun is right above your head and the whole city is sizzling in the scorching summer heat, there is only one thing that can cool you down – a chilled glass of creamy lassi. Made using simple ingredients like milk, curd, and sugar, lassi has been our traditional summer cooler for ages. It is creamy, sweet, and works best when you want something refreshing and filling. Toss in some ice, add a layer of fresh malai and you are all set to guzzle down the sweet drink. What reminded us of this? Well, it is industrialist Harsh Goenka's latest Twitter post.

He then adds sugar and churns the mixture with some milk. The lassi is then served in a kulhad or earthen cup. “My simple small pleasures in summer!” the caption read.
