Lassi is basically an Indian drink which is yoghurt based and is very popular in the sub continent. It is a cooling and refreshing drink which can actually bring you back to life after a dull and tiring day. There are various types of lassis which are favoured in different regions and can be sweet or salty accordingly. In India lassi mostly means sweet and is made up of full cream curd mixed with sugar and little water or milk topped with a layer of malai or clotted cream. Though now a days there are differnt variants available that are flavoured with rose, kesar, mango etc. My version of lassi recipe today is a Kesar(saffron) Elaichi(Cardamom) Lassi which is one of my favourite and is really rich. Kesar Elaichi Lassi is not very common though but I would highly recommend to try it out if you want an outburst of flavours in your mouth. Having said that I would also like to say that saffron and cardamom really go well with curd.

I think desserts are my speciality, be it Indian or International, more than eating, I love making sweets at home.

Most of the Indian sweets are milk based, and playing with milk is what I like to do. I love the aroma when milk starts thickening/reducing and changes its colour. Continue reading
