    Mmmm but there are so many indian spices you could use! Savory To plain lassi, add a pinch of ground cumin or ground black pepper and a squirt of lemon juice. Mix well and salt to taste. (For proportions, try 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon cumin and a pinch of black pepper for two servings of lassi.)  Another combination is ground cumin and fennel seeds; the fennel should be 1/3 or 1/4 of the mixture. Try adding a little ginger juice. Chop some fresh, peeled ginger, gather inside a ball of cheesecloth, and squeeze. All these ingredients are known for promoting digestion.  Note: The cumin and fennel seeds may be roasted for stronger flavor and aroma. Put a small skillet on medium heat and toast the whole spice, shaking the skillet frequently. When you can smell the spice, immediately remove the pan from the heat and grind the seeds in a mortar and pestle or coffee/spice grinder reserved for spices. A peppery nasturtium blossom would be a suitable garnish for a savory lassi.
