Kesar Sweet Lassi Recipe | Summer Special Recipes

This post is special to me not for the recipe or any memories associated with it. Though it sounds silly to say that I got a wooden board of my choice finally....and this was the first click using it, Yes!! that is the truth :D I can even write a episode of the pain we(yes hubby is always the victim) went through searching for a wooden base. They never understood what I wanted and I was not satisfied with what they showed and this continued for so many months. Guess food bloggers would understand my plight :)

Now straight to the recipe : I wanted to make a recipe quick to quench our thrist and the choice was sweet lassi with kesar cardamom flavour.....the combination was just yum. Do give a try !
Kesar Sweet Lassi Recipe

Kesar Sweet Lassi Recipe - Ingredients
  • Yogurt(chilled) - 1 cup
  • Sugar- 2 tsp
  • Saffron - 2 to 3 strands
  • Milk - 1 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Nuts - 1 tsp just for garnish(I used chopped pistas and badams)

The making of lassi is close to shrikhand  but the major difference is shrikhand uses hung curd and lassi uses just plain curd. Both are my favourite and mittu loves any yogurt based desserts and drinks so another reason to make this often :)

Method:
1.Soak saffron strands in warm milk. Crush it well till the flavour is well mixed with milk. Set aside. Beat the curd well.

My Notes:
  • You can ignore the kesar flavour and enjoy it plain too. Or make it mango flavoured if you like it
  • Always prepare it fresh and serve it immediately.
  • Do not add water and use thick yogurt for a creamier lassi.
  • You can add crushed ice too while blending but dont add more as it makes the lassi diluted.
