Rose Lassi

Lassis require no introduction. And this easy peasy recipe is the reason...I crawl back to it more than I crawl back to the readymade bottle of lemonade. And with a drizzle of rose syrup and some simply becomes the nectar from heaven in a glass!!!

Rose Lassi
Serves 2

how to make Rose Lassi recipe

1 and ½ cup of thick yogurt
2-4 tbsp rose syrup (if you don’t have rose syrup then just use rose water. In that case you have to use sugar and you will not have that beautiful pink colour. But trust me the taste will be same.)
2 green cardamoms
Some slivered pistachios to garnish
Sugar – as per taste
Chilled water 1 cup or more if required

Dry roast the green cardamoms for some seconds and then let them cool down. Peel off their skin and take out their seeds. Put them in a mortar and pestle and grind to a fine powder.
In a blender put together, the yogurt, 2 tbsp of the rose syrup, ground green cardamom powder and 2 tbsp of the sugar. The syrup already contains sugar so don’t go overboard.
Blend them until they are all mish-mashed.
Now taste and add more rose syrup or sugar or water, as required.
Blend until you see the mixture become frothy.
Take glasses and pour in some rose syrup around the edges...and pour in the lassi.

Garnish with some slivered pistachios and serve immediately.
