Mango Lassi and Rose Lassi- to beat the heat!!!!



Lassi refers to any yogurt based drink. The traditional ones are the sweet lassi and the spicy lassi. Now a days people are getting creative and varieties of lassi are introduced using different fruits. Today I am here with two lassi ideas which I am sure you all will like and try.

We can see the mango lassi in almost all the Indian restaurants. Kids to elders, everyone likes this a lot. The perfect combination of mango slices along with curd and milk with required amount of honey is what it makes an amazing thirst quencher which gives a cooling effect.


To make mango lassi , we can either use canned mangoes or mango pulp or frozen mangoes. During the fasting time this used to be a filler. These days as it is very hot, this is an amazing drink to make. Adding a dash of cardamom powder will take this lassi to another level. With the mango season and the soaring heat, this is the perfect time to make mango lassi.
Here I have used my Moscow mule mugs, which I used previously for dry ginger coffee post. Doesn't it look beautiful???

Ingredients:
For Mango Lassi:

  1. Mango Pieces- 1 Cup
  2. Curd- 1 Cup
  3. Milk- 1/4 Cup
  4. Honey- 3 tbsp
  5. Cardamom Powder- 1 tsp (optional)

Method:

  • Blend all  the ingredients in a blender and serve in tall glasses, garnish with slivered nuts and enjoy.


Rose Lassi is a another variety, that is made using rose syrup, which is homemade or store bought. I made this using a homemade rose syrup which I made for falooda. We can make the rose syrup and can be stored in air tight jars in refrigerator. This can be used later for making rose milkshakes, lassi and many other drinks. We can also use roohafza, which is easily available, instead of rose syrup. The nice aroma of the rose will enhance the flavors and makes you feel refreshing. Garnish with some fresh or dried rose petals.


For Rose Lassi:

  1. Homemade Rose Syrup- 3 tbsp
  2. Curd- 1 Cup
  3. Milk- 2 tbsp
  4. Honey- 2 tbsp (optional)

Method:

  • Blend all the ingredients in a blender and enjoy on a hot summer day.

These drinks will be enjoyed by the guests and will be a super hit if served in a party. Just sprinkle some almonds and pistachios on top for the crunchiness, which makes it simply irresistible. Hope you all enjoyed today's post and please try this and let me know.
