Hurray for yogurt drinks!

I got a cool tweet sent my way that involves lassi variations. Don’t know if the person actually follows my twitter conversations or not, but I absolutely love yogurt drinks: ayran, lassi, kefir, etc.

Kesar Elaichi Lassi was listed in this fabulous tweet. I’d never heard of it so I ventured onto YouTube and found this  video, fell in love, and got to work on one. It’s a Punjabi recipe and it makes me so happy! Make one and see if it makes you happy, too.

Put all of this in a blender:

  • Yogurt (500 mg)
  • Sugar (1/4 cup)
  • Saffron (10-15 strands, soaked in 2 tbsp of milk)
  • Whole Milk (1/2 cup)
  • Cardamom (6-8 pods, crush and discard the skin)

Serve and top it off with nuts:

  • Almond slivers (for garnish)
  • Pistachio slivers (for garnish)

What do you think?
