In the summer, another soothing and refreshing drink to try is Sweet Lassi. Punjab and northern India are major fans of it.

Because of its cooling properties, Lassi is particularly common during the hot summer months. You can spice it with cardamom powder or rose water. When serving, sprinkle with cardamom powder and sliced almonds. Saffron can be added to the lassi if desired.


1. 2 cups chilled fresh curd (dahi or yogurt)

2. 1.5 to 2 cups chilled water or milk or half-half of both water and milk

3. 10 to 12 tablespoons sugar or add as per taste

4. 1 teaspoon cardamom powder or 2 tsp rose water

5. a few strands of saffron , optional

6. 6 to 8 ice cubes, optional

7. 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped or sliced dry fruits, optional. 


1. Take 8 to 10 cardamom pods and smash them in a mortar. Remove the husk from the seeds and smash them. To make a fine powder, crush it.

2. Place 2 cups fresh chilled yogurt in a bowl or pan. I made my own curd.

3. Using a madani, blender, or wired whisk, blend the curd until it is smooth.

4. Before adding the other ingredients, the curd should be smooth.

5. Add 10 to 12 tablespoons of sugar, or as needed.

6. Finally, pour in 2 cups of chilled water. Instead of water, 2 cups chilled milk can be added. This lassi is neither thin nor dense in quality. Add 1 to 1.5 cups water if you want a thick lassi.

7. Add the madani to the lassi mixture and churn it.

8. Continue to churn until the sugar dissolves and a nice frothy layer forms on top. You can also do this with an immersion blender. Another choice is to combine all of the ingredients in a blender jar and blend until smooth.

9. Stir in 1 teaspoon crushed cardamom powder and a few strands of saffron. 2 tsp rose water can be used as a replacement for cardamom powder. If you don't have any flavoring ingredients, you can leave them out entirely.

10. Combine the madani once more. Mix in the ice cubes once more.

11. Serve the lassi in tall glasses. 1 to 2 tbsp malai (cream that collects on top of milk) or 1 to 2 tbsp unsalted white butter/makhan can be added if desired.

12. Add a pinch of cardamom powder, 2 to 3 saffron strands, or chopped dry fruits as garnish.

13. Serve the sweet punjabi lassi right away.
