You know this might sound really weird to you and/or whoever reads this review, but when I took the first sip of this, I felt like I was sailing on the Titanic and really enjoying myself! Haha! Today is a very auspicious day for us. It's what we call 'Shani Jayanti'(its the day of the God of the planet Saturn!) and I was fasting all day. I broke my fast with a glass of this drink at 6pm and I feel so refreshed, gosh, I feel like a queen! What a beautiful drink this is!! I did use only milk(and not yogurt)as I am trying of late not to mix the two together. You know, what I loved best about this is adding 'rose water' in this recipe. I don't remember doing this ever. But, in this drink, what I REALLY LOVED is the individual taste of the rose water. The sliced and toasted almonds also made this really presentable and even more appealing! I can't thank you enough for a really refreshing drink! Thank you sooooooo much. I'll be making this again and again and again until the market runs out of mangoes! ;)
I just love this drink! Instead of ice cubes I used frozen fruit(strawberry`s and melons) I did make it with a fresh mango. I skipped the milk and used just yogurt and water.
I prepared the lassi as the recipe outlined with one exception, I omitted the almonds. The result was something that tasted like soap water with a hint of mango and rose. If I were to use this recipe again, I will a very small fraction of the rose water, omit the ice water and add sugar. Perhaps it is because we are not familiar with the taste of rose water, but my wife, son, and I found this recipe inedible.
