Recipe

There is no better way of cooling down a fiery curry than with a tall glass of chilled lassi.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 5 Mins

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.

Variations:

Salted Lassi:

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.

Fruit Lassi:

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.
