There is no better way of cooling down a fiery curry than with a tall glass of chilled lassi.
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1¼ cups whole milk
- 1 tbsp superfine sugar
- Few drops of rose water
- 1 cup crushed ice
- A pinch of ground cardamom, to serve
1. Whisk the yogurt, milk, sugar, and rose water together until evenly combined and foamy. (Or, process the ingredients in a blender until foamy.)
2. Divide the crushed ice among 4 tall glasses, and pour in equal amounts of the lassi. Sprinkle each with a little ground cardamom and serve at once.
Omit the rose water and sugar. Rub the rim of each glass with a wedge of lemon or lime and dip in coarse salt until coated. Pour in the drink and serve without straws.
Part or all of the milk can be replaced with a tropical fruit juice such as mango or pineapple. Instead of rose water, use a few drops of vanilla or almond essence.
