Rose & Pistachio Lassi.jpg

Lassi is a popular Indian yoghurt drink, commonly served with meals and perfect for hot summer days . It’s traditionally made with just sugar but a common variation is making it with mango – which is absolutely yummy. Here, we’ve made it with rose syrup ,pistachio and a little honey which is a nice way to jazz it up if you’re having people over or if you just feel like putting  a little more effort into it. Chill well before serving!

Makes 2 small glasses

Ingredients

300g plain unsweetened yoghurt

3 tsp pistachio granules

6 cardamom pods

1/2 cup milk

1/2 tbsp honey

For the rose syrup :

1 and half tsp rosewater

4 tbsp water

3 tbsp sugar

To garnish:

A few rose petals

1/2 teaspoon pistachio granules

2 cinnamon sticks

Method

Grind the cardamom pods in a mortar , discard the green shells and grind the black seeds into a powder

Make the rose syrup; In a small saucepan, mix the rosewater, water and sugar just until the sugar melts.

Place the yoghurt, rose syrup, pistachio granules, honey, milk & cardamom pods in a blender and blend until smooth. 

Chill in the refrigerator and serve garnished with pistachio granules, rose petals and cinnamon stick as a stirrer. If you need to serve it immediately, pour it over crushed ice.
