Lassi is a popular and traditional drink and it originates from North India. It is made by blending yogurt with water, sugar and ice. It is also sometimes consumed in another form by mixing spices, salt and pepper with it.

This drink was brought to Bangladesh by the Sindh of Pakistan as this was one of their favourite drinks. It remained popular even after the Independence. It has now become an integral part of the Bangladesh’i culture. It can be found in many Bengali food places all over Bangladesh but the taste of the traditional lassi can only be found in Old Dhaka. The Lassi makers of Old Dhaka have been in the profession for a long time and they are very popular for the lassi that they make.
