Lassi has been dawning upon my mind, since i posted a post on instagram few weeks back. I was writing about Amritsari breakfast in my post, and how a Sunday in Amritsar (My hometown in India) is incomplete without drowning in a glass of lassi in Punjab(India). And then all i wanted was , to have Lassi.

What is Lassi?

Authentic lassi is a blend of homemade curd/ yoghurt, milk, ice and sweetener (sugar). It is topped with a dollop of Malai (homemade cream), or white homemade butter. Lassi is traditionally made using a hand churner called madhani. Thanks to technology we have electrical churners now (our very on blenders). The task of blending is so very easier and quicker.

Lassi is considered the healthiest drinks to be had in summers. Why ?

  • It is a probiotic
  • keeps body temp low
  • prevents heatstroke
  • is very very refreshing
  • nothing can beat the taste of this chilled creamy (and i would seriously not argue on this ).

Some tips to personalise your lassi-

  1. Adding a little malai( homemade cream, or clotted cream), while blending lassi makes it more creamy. If you want to indulge, do add a little cream.
  2. Traditionally lassi is a combination of yoghurt and milk, but if you want to make a lighter version, add water in place of milk, or use half water, half milk.
  3. For sweetening you can use regular sugar, honey, maple syrup, or any sweetener you prefer.

Not a typical version of Lassi today.

Off late i have been cooking and experimenting a lot with Matcha, and have been thinking of creating different recipes using this super healthy ingredient.. This one came to my mind, while i was making my regular pistachio lassi, that i often usually make in summers.

Ingredients required

This lassi is a blend of six basic ingredients-

  • Matcha powder (I use Matchaeologist matsu Matcha powder. You can get it here.),
  • pistachios,
  • cardamom powder,
  • sweetener- I used maple syrup in the recipe. You can use sugar, honey, or any sweetener of your choice.
  • yoghurt,
  • milk and
  • ice
  • Cream or homemade butter to top for serving(optional)
