For our Deepavali Dinner, I made Sweet Lassi to drink with our feast. Sweet Lassi is one of my fondest childhood memories, I love having it with my meal, it sort of cools down the spicy in my mouth. My problem as a kid was that I would fill up on sweet lassi and have no more room for dinner!
This recipe is quick and easy to make, and can be varied by adding fruit! Try a mango lassi, kiwi lassi, papaya lassi, strawberry lassi, blueberry lassi, raspberry lassi, peach lassi – you probably want soft fruit, not crispy fruit like apples, or stringy fruit like orange. If you do want apple or orange lassi, I would suggest juicing the fruits first, then adding it to your lassi mix.
Also this recipe requires rose water, you can get that from your friendly neighbourhood indian grocery store. Beware of free-pouring rose water, it is actually quite a strong flavour, despite looking deceptively innocuous. Be sure to actually measure the amount out before mixing it with other stuff.
