240) LASSI


LASSI
A REFRESHING BUTTERMILK COOL DRINK TO ENERGIZE YOU IN SUMMER

Ingredients:

     1)    Buttermilk or curd (see note no. 1) – 1 litre
     2)    Water – 1 litre
     3)    Sugar – 200 gm.
     4)    Rose extract or rose essence – 1 teaspoon
     5)    Fresh lime juice – of one green lime
     6)    Ice cubes – 10 to 15 Nos.


To Make:

          Put all the ingredients into a 3 litre vessel and stir till the sugar is fully dissolved. Taste. If it is too sour, add more water and sugar. Stir well and enjoy!


Notes:

     1)    If you are using curd to make a thick lassi, you need to whip it up for 30 seconds before pouring it into the mixing vessel. This will aerate the curd and make a nice frothy lassi. The buttermilk lassi however, contains much less fat and can be enjoyed in larger volumes.

     2)     As lassi contains beneficial lactobacilli, it is excellent for digestion and for health.

     3)    Curd and buttermilk have cooling properties and help to keep your body cool and comfortable in summer.

     4)    The amount of sugar and water required may vary depending upon the sourness of the buttermilk and the curd and upon the sweet tooth of the drinker.

     5)    It is best to find the right balance of sour and sweet for total satisfaction. Your tongue is the best judge in the matter.
