Remember those times during your childhood when your Grandmoms would make you drink up a tall glass of Lassi or Shikanji after you came back from school on a hot summer day? Our mothers also made sure to keep supplying us with these drinks, whether it was after school or after a session of fun games in the evening. Some of us loved the attention and the little treat it was. Then came the era of glucose drinks, and they seemed to be healthier – and a lot of families switched over to these drinks. But these traditional summer drinks not just cool you down but also make up for the lost minerals as you sweat.
To cool you down while you gorge on your favourite dishes, Paranthe Wali Galli, The 42 seater Parantha Joint situated in the by-lanes of Sarat Bose Road, has an elaborate beverage menu, along with a range of dishes which embraces the never heard before combinations.
There is probably no other Indian drink as popular as Lassi. The Punjabi lassi hasn’t just conquered the country with its taste and benefits, but also the rest of the world. Often touted as the oldest smoothie in the world, a sip of luscious lassi cascading down your parched throat can instantly lift your mood and provide relief from the sultry heat. The Parantha Joint gives you a wide variety of options in lassi like Seetaphal Lassi, Aam Lassi, Orange Lassi, Meethi Lassi, Chhachh Lassi, Pineapple Lassi, Strawberry Lassi, Blueberry Lassi, Green Apple Lassi, Salted Caramel Lassi, Gulabi Gulkand Lassi, Badaam Rabri Lassi, Paan Lassi, Gandharaj Lassi and Motichoor Lassi.

Call it lemon water or neebu pani, it has always been the best of all summer drinks. Traditionally made with water, lemon and salt, it also includes ingredients like ginger juice, sugar and cumin at times.
