Pomegranate Pistachio Lassis in Varanasi, India…

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.

Chai is served this way also. #dusttodust #bluelassi @gowithpeggy #pmcaIndia
