2 tablespoons Honey, or to taste
1 Good squirt of good quality rose flavouring
1 pinch Crushed, dried mint (or two leaves of finely shredded and chopped fresh mint)

Whir this up in the blender (or shaker) and pour over ice. Very good with hot, spicey meals and East Indian foods.


Lassi Two

Yield 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient:

1 quart Milk
1 quart Yogurt (up to)
cup Sugar
4 teaspoons Vanilla (up to)
8 Fresh mint leaves

Mix first 5 ingredients together. Immerse 6-8 fresh mint leaves (bruise leaves and tie ends of stalks together) into lassi. Let stand in fridge at least 5 hours to allow mint flavor to permeate lassi. Remove mint before serving. This cold mint beverage is a variation of a common South Asian drink, often flavored with rose water. Similar drinks are served in the Middle East. Lassi is a nice accompaniment to hot spicy foods. Children wll enjoy making and drinking it as a refreshing snack.


Lassi Three

Yield 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient:

2 cups Yoghurt
Ice cubes (about 4-6)
Sugar
Limes/lemon
Salt

Blend the yoghurt and ice cubes together, until the yoghurt becomes more liquid. add sugar to taste. the lemon/lime is optional but it gives it a slightly tart taste. dash of salt.


Lassi Four

Yield 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient:

cup Buttermilk
cup Crushed ice

There is actually a much easier (and lazier) method for making lassi. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk to 1/4 cup crushed ice. Shake it up (this is the fun part!). As any Indian can tell you, lassi can be made either sweet or sour, depending on your taste. If you want it sweet, add sugar until it's sweet enough. If you want it sour, add salt to your taste. Mint is optional. Shake it up again (more fun!). An interesting variation i've had is mango lassi. This basically involves adding some very ripe, juicy mango to the buttermilk and putting it through the blender. Add sugar, cardomom if you want. The main problem i've had with making lassi in the states is that the buttermilk is too thick.

Recipe by: Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken Beat yogurt until smooth and gradually stir in iced water. Season with This recipe yields 4 servings.


Salty lassi Two

Yield 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient:

1 cup Unflavored yoghurt
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Ground cumin
3 cups Ice water

Combine the yoghurt and salt in a deep bowl and beat vigorously with a whisk or spoon until the mixture is smooth. Beating constantly, pour in the ice water in a slow, thin stream and continue to beat until all the ingredients are well blended. Taste for seasoning. (A quicker, though hardly traditional, method is to combine the yoghurt, cumin, salt and ice water in the jar on an electric blender and blend at high speed for 1 minute or until the mixture is smooth.) Pour the lassi into a chilled pitcher and serve it from chilled tumblers. If you like, you may prepare the drink ahead of time and keep it chilled in the refrigerator until ready to serve. **Now, I think I would try to reduce it to one serving and add ice cubes to the blender instead of ice water.
