Garlic Lussi/ Garlic and Cumin Flavored Buttermilk

Garlic Lussi/
Garlic and Cumin Flavored Buttermilk

Hi Friends,
I have a good news to share with you. But bit scared to share it as i am very unlucky about all these things. After six years we are going for a vacation to a hill station- MANALI, a famous hills station of India. Tomorrow we are leaving. but still i can't believe that we are going. By the time we board our VOLVO tomorrow then i will say that YES really first time with kids we are going for a holiday. In last year i have faced so many rough patches in my life and finally after six years i succeed to convince my hubby to go for a holiday with kids. 
I am really very excited about this trip as this is first time we are going for a holiday with our kids. I have packed our bags and still lots of things are pending. I made a list and don't know how many times i modified it. My hubby says i am gone mad. He is surprised to see my preparations for the trip. We are going only for 4 days and 3 nights and my hubby says i am planning like we are going for 2 weeks. Actually kids are small so didn't wanted to take them for a long vacation. So we planned a small trip. But i am happy with this also. Something Is Batter Then Nothing. RIGHT??? So with the hopes that finally we will move tomorrow without any obstacles. I am moving to today's recipe. 
If you love garlic then this recipe is for you or if you like buttermilk then its good for you. Today i am here with garlic flavored lussi/buttermilk. I saw this recipe on a blog and forgot it. One day i heard about garlic curd dip and then i remembered about it. i forgot the recipe so used my imagination to make it. Now its one of my favorite drink. Its a very healthy preparation for scorching summery evenings. Garlic has so many health properties. You can try this link to know more about GARLIC. So friends its a flexible recipe, you can skip or add, decrease or increase the ingredients as per your choice. If you don't like cumin then skip it, if you like pepper pdr then add more. its totally up to you. You can make it thick or thin. Even my kids who hate garlic drank full of it. So try it guys may be your family will also like it.
