Walking the small lanes of Varanasi, we passed old tea shops, paneer venders, bead sellers and so forth and stumbled upon a lassi shop popular with travelers. Our favorite was pomegranate and pistachio.
A lassi wallah sits in the window with his legs crossed and blends fruits into different flavored lassis by hand in a big silver bowl with a wooden pestle. Afterwards, he sprinkles the poms, having peeled them on the spot.
My favorite part? They are served in terra cotta.. then crushed afterwards.
