Lassi or Sweet Buttermilk


Lassi High Resolution

I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like a glass of well made lassi! Sweet,creamy and refreshing,this glass of yum is sure to steal your heart. I am sure there are a number of ways in which it is made and relished. I share here the way it is made in my kichen, neither too thick, nor too watery and with a hint of cardamom.
To make 4 glasses, you need

1 ½ cups of hung curd
½ cup of milk, at room temperature
4-6 tsp powdered sugar (or boora, if you have it)
1 tsp of powdered cardamom
1 cup of chilled water
Some ice cubes

To prepare hung curd , tie the curd in a muslin cloth and let it hang for an hour, so that all the water gets drained away. If the curd is fresh and sweet, you can proceed with the making of lassi even without hanging it to drain the water.

Whisk together curd, milk, cardamom powder and sugar till it is well combined.
Add the water and ice cubes and whisk well.
Serve chilled.

You may add mango pulp to make mango lassi or rose syrup to make rose lassi. Adjust the sugar accordingly.
