Lhassi (Indian Yoghurt Drink)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 0 mins

Scented yoghurt drink from India. Great served with curries. Very smooth and refreshing in a hot climate. It has a very cooling effect on the mouth. You can make mango lhassi by blending in mango pieces with the yogurt or try it with different fruits or spices.

Delicious and refreshing. I only made enough for one serving and was wishing I had made lots more, it was so tasty. I took the recipe poster's suggestion and added some fresh mango to mine and it was delicious. The rose water is the secret ingredient - it adds such a nice aroma and light taste.

I've been having this regularly for about a year now. I don't tire of it. I grind cardamom seeds in my mortar and pestle. Love the nutrition that comes from this amazing spice. Highly recommend. I was also introduced to rosewater in this recipe. Simple, delicious, refreshing.

I enjoyed the addition of the cinnamon and cardamon to what otherwise is my standard lassi recipe. It really is a very nice touch.
