Rose Lassi is a delicious twist on the traditional lassi and is flavoured with rose syrup to give it a nice pink hue and a refreshing taste. It is a perfect drink to serve for breakfast or for evening snack. Here is how to make rose lassi recipe.
Lassi is a very popular yoghurt based drink in India, especially in North India where it’s made thick and creamy and it’s just the perfect drink to sip on this summer. Today I’m going to present to you a royal and decadent version of the traditional lassi.
So it’s time to bring out those lassi recipes this summer, there are loads on Indian Lassi recipes to choose from, some of my absolute favourites are Easy Mango Lassi, Strawberry Oats Coconut Lassi, Tulsi Honey Lassi and a flavourful Kesar Elaichi Lassi.
For this simple divine Rose Lassi Recipe, I use the popular syrup called Rooh Afza that gives it a rather unique taste. You could use any brand of Rose Syrup, but the most popular one in the market is Rooh Afza, it also gives the sweet lassi a beautiful hue of pink.
You can also make rose lassi by adding gulkand to it. Gulkand is a jam made using fresh rose petals. It gives a very unique taste to the lassi.
I have not added any additional colour to the recipe to enhance its appearance.
How to make Rose Lassi?
To make this heady, rosy sweet drink, add a cup of fresh curd with chilled milk in a blender and mix till smooth. Then add in the luscious rose syrup and if required add some sugar, ensure you account for the sugar in the Rooh Afza as well, then mix in the ice cubes and blend it into the lassi well.
Pour this delicious rosy pink concoction into a beautiful serving glass and top it with some chopped almonds and pistachios for a nice crunch. You could also top this sweet rose lassi with some fresh or dried rose petals; this adds a love flavour to the whole drink and makes it simply irresistible.
Tips to make best Rose Lassi
Use thick full fat yogurt to make this lassi. The yogurt should not be sour.
Homemade yogurt is the best.
If you like very thick lassi, then instead of blending everything in a blender, use a wire whisk to make the lassi.
Adding Gulkand in Lassi? Then reduce the amount of sugar as gulkand has lot’s of sugar in it already.
If you are a diabetic, then add sugar free instead of sugar in lassi.
Fall in love with this sensational drink fit for the gods, a whiff of the aroma and a sip of this fantastic mix of flavours is sure to leave you wanting more. This drink also brings back bouts of nostalgia as it’s a hot favourite at most milk parlours that serve this rose milk or lassi.
