How To Make Creamy Rose Lassi
Creamy Rose Lassi Recipe
- 2.5 cups hung curd
- 4 Tbsp Rose Syrup
- 1 tbsp of honey/sugar if needed
- 1 cup Water
- Ice cubes
For Hung Curd
- 3 cups Curd dahi
- Finely chopped Pistachios or Almonds
- Rose petals
For Hung Curd
- To make hung curd, put a strainer in a large basin and cover it with muslin cloth.
- Add the curd, then join the muslin cloth’s edges with a knot.
- To drain the whey, hang the curd in a cool location for at least an hour. As an alternative, you may weigh down the curd.
- Transfer to a bowl.
For Rose Lassi
- Mix the hung curd, rose syrup, sugar, and ice cubes in a blender to make rose lassi. Blend until smooth.
- If it has a consistency that is too thick, add some water.
- Refrigerate the lassi for at least 1 hour.
- Serve this chilled rose lassi and garnish with some rose petals and finely chopped dry fruits.
- I do not advise using honey in this recipe because it does not mix well with cold liquid (but you could boil it with milk or water and freeze it first). However, maple syrup does mix well with cold beverages.
- A higher fat-content yogurt is required for creamier and thicker lassi. I would choose at least Fage 5% Greek yogurt for a rich lassi.
- This recipe mostly does not require added sugar because the syrup is already too sweet. The rose syrup should be used sparingly because it is potent and may make the lassi too sweet. It is preferable to continue adding more.
The greatest accompaniment to this Rose Lassi is any spicy or another Indian dish. It pairs well with spicy Indian snacks like Chorafali, Bhakarwadi or Aloo Bhujia. When the Rose Lassi is poured into a serving glass, it will have a creamy, foamy top.
Many Indian restaurants serve lassi in tall cups. It is perfect for date nights or serving as kid entertainment because of its vibrant pink colour! Then, Why wait? Make this rose lassi now to cool off in the summer.
What is Lassi?
The yogurt-based beverage lassi is a native of the Indian subcontinent. With a mixture of yogurt, milk, spices, fruit, and other flavourings, it is often made sweet or, on rare occasions, even salty.
Can I make rose lassi with Greek yogurt?
Yes, you should substitute dahi with the same amount of plain Greek yogurt, preferably with some fat content. To change the thickness, add milk.
Which rose syrup is the finest to use?
I suggest Rooh Afza, which is available in any Indian market. Another excellent alternative is gulkand, or rose petal preserve.
