Rose Lassi

Lassi/buttermilk  has been my favorite beverage since my childhood, be it salted and mildly spiced or mango or kesar (saffron), you name it and I will gulp it down like a meal. My better half likes to sip his lassi over the course of the meal, savoring the taste with every bite of food. I am more of the gulp kind, I love to have my mouth fill up with gulps of lassi goodness. As a result I end up making a meal out of it and I’m not ashamed to say I have stolen multiple sips from him after I have happily had mine. I have been seen ordering multiple glass of lassi for myself :), you tend to get judged when you do things like that at a fine dining place. But in the comfort of your own home, you could be drinking lassi from a hose or your blender jar…it’s a perk you enjoy with only homemade lassi. 

This lassi is made from gulkand. Gulkand is a sweet preserve made from rose petals. It is available at any Indian grocery store and has a beautiful rose aroma. It has some great health benefits, I am not going to get into the details of that but let’s just say it tastes amazing and is really good for you.

6 tbsp gulkand (store bought)
6 tbsp rose syrup 
1 tsp green cardamom powder 
Sugar optional

Makes 6 -7 wine glasses of rose lassi 

Blend together in a blender, serve garnished with rose petals. If the yogurt is a bit sour and lassi is not sweet add desired amount of sugar, I did not have to add any as both gulkand and rose syrup are sweet. 

I don’t think anything can be as day as this :) You can pair it with Indian food, or even serve it with dessert, pairs so well with gulab jamun. 

If you love lassi, here is a savory spicy one and here the mango lassi

    1. Thanks so much. Rose syrup is more for the color, it is deep red in color. The gulkand is more for the flavor.
