Spicy cucumber lassi/buttermilk for hot summers= drink recipes

cucumber lassi Buttermilk is the best drink to beat the scorching heat of the hot summers. And cucumber eaten raw or in juiced form quenches thirst and always keeps your body hydrated,as it is rightly said"as cool as cucumber". Combining this makes a ideal drink for the summer. One can refrigerate this and can have the chilled drink number of times a day. It has a lot of health benefits also.
Ingredients-
yogurt - 2 glasses
cucumber- 2 peeled and chopped into cubes
Garlic cloves- 2
Ginger- a small piece finely chopped
Salt- to taste
sugar- 1tsp(optional)
Asafoetida/hing- a pinch
Method-
Blend all the ingredients together and serve chilled.

P.S. You can also add few drops of lime juice and a little chaat masala to enhance its taste and flavour.
I am sending this as my entry for fun 'n' sun event hosted by easycrafts.
