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.

Yes, I think winter is the best time to whip up desserts beautifully because ingredients are so easy to handle and you do not have frostings and buttercreams melting all over and spoiling your hardwork.

Anyway, that was just a little information I wanted to share. Well, coming back to today’s recipe, its just not any recipe today, its my citrusy take on the humble “Brownies.” I love brownies but don’t you think even brownies should have variants and that’s exactly what I did, I baked some fudgy lime brownies which are to die for.
