Makhaniya Lassi -मखनिया लस्सी (Creamy Buttermilk Drink) - BM # 5

Hello Friends,

This is day 4 of blogging Marathon # 5 which was started by Srivalli

I wrote a nice post (at least I would like to think it was nice), but somehow blogger ate up my post in the whole chaos of last week. Now, I don't think I have time or energy to do it again. Sorry about it friends. I am sorry to have lost all of the wonderful comments you guys had posted for this recipe :(

This is one of the most common drinks we get on the street (in markets) in summer and even at home. Perfect and better than any cold carbonated drinks as it not only cools you down but also replenishes you with nutrients and keeps you full. Even though we call it a drink, I sometimes feel that I eat it more than drink due to it's consistency, know what I mean :)

Makhaniya Lassi -मखनिया लस्सी (Creamy Buttermilk Drink)
Creamy Yogurt - 2 cups (make sure it is not sour and make sure it is cold as we are not adding any ice to this drink)
Ice Cold Water - 3/4 cup
Mishri (Rock Sugar) Powder - 3 tbsps
Mixed nuts - 1/2 cup - I used a mix of Cashews, Pistachio and Almonds, feel free to use any blend
Malai (Cream) - 4 tbsps. - Home made is the best kind. To make it, boil whole milk in a heavy bottomed pan and let it cool down. As it cools down, it will form a thick layer of cream on top, skim it off, save. Now, repeat the process till you have enough cream :)
Saffron - few strands

  • Blend Yogurt and rock sugar powder to creamy consistency.
  • Pour it in a glass and top with malai (home made cream), saffron strands and nuts.

Enjoy on any summer day :)

That's all for now. Till next post, take care.
