Recipe

Sweet Yogurt Drink

In this drink plain yogurt is thinned out with ice water and sweetened. Lassi may be drunk with meals or, as was generally done in my family, it can be served between lunch and dinner. In India, lassi is often served after vigorous games of tennis, badminton, or hockey.

Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients

  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 1½ cups ice-cold water
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon rose essence (optional)

Directions

Combine all ingredients in the container of an electric blender and blend for 3 seconds. Pour into two glasses and serve.

This drink may be made several hours ahead of time and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.

It should be served very cold. Stir before serving.
