Today make some different dishes. What say? Actually, that is not dishes it’s drink or you can say summer drink or chilled beverage or like desert… Today I make badam lassi or you can say badam pista lassi or lassie drink, whatever you can call that…
The best lassi in India, you will find various types of lassi such as chocolate lassi, pan lassi, rose lassi, mango lassi, strawberry lassi, and cardamon lassi, sweet lassi. Many of those who don’t know – in Hindi ‘badam’ mean almond and ‘pista is pistachio.
Kesar Lassi, Badaam Lassi, Kesar dry-fruits lassi, Dry-Fruits Lassi, lassi drink
Lassi is better if the kulhad / terra cotta cup is served, but if you do not have it then serve in glasses. The best part of the lassi is that you can freeze it and keep it so many times. Traditionally, Lassi is churned with the help of a wooden churner called ‘Madani’. If you do not have any Madani, mix it with mixer or blender.
Summer days are really totally incomplete without Lassie’s full glass. Having a glass of lassi in the summer gives you strength, cools the body, controls the stomach and gives a sweet and delicious taste in the mouth for some more time. Keep the cream or cream thick, and serve your guest with fresh peda. They will like it great.
There are many variations in Lassi. Some people mix yogurt with milk, soak some mixture with cold water or ice. Here I use thick yogurt with milk and sugar. I’m not using cream so it’s lassi lighter version. No lassi is complete without touching cardamon powder, some people add rose water and saffron but it’s optional. Obviously, I’ve used pistachios and almonds, but you can add cashews to the lassi.
