The Milkshake of India: LASSI

How to make Sweet Lassi:
Put 500 ml Curd, 250 ml Water,4 tbsp Sugar and Crushed Ice into the blender. Blend til the mixture gives a thick froth.
Pour the Sweet Lassi into tall glasses and it's ready to serve.
Flavored Lassi with rosewater or lemon, mango, strawberry are also a big hit.
Perfect coolers for the hot Indian weather.
(Particularly my favourite)
Lassi trivia: (courtesy wikipedia)
A drink in Turkey also made with yoghurt and water and similar in taste is called 'Ayran'.
In Iran its called 'Doogh'.
