Kesar Malai Lassi | Saffron Lassi | Indian Summer Drinks

I am a huge fan of lassi's both milk and curd based ones. In this part of the world summer seems to be the ever present season and I have no excuses to prepare lassi's at home. When my dear friend Manjula Bharath posted her Rajastani Thali recipe for SNC challenge, I wanted to prepare this Keasar Lassi recipe almost the same day and somehow a month later I realised it was too late to post the challenge recipe and honestly speaking taking about friendship day that just passed, hmmm I am too bad a friend. So keeping behind the guilt I thought I will try few of her recipes from the challenge and then post it as I find time in my blog. Honestly I have never tried Rajastani cuisine and I am really intrigued by their list of vegetarian recipes that I want to give it a try in my kitchen. So that said I gave this Kesar lassi recipe a go and trust me its one of the best Lassi recipes I have ever tried. It was so flavorful, filling and refreshing. Thanks Manju for this super duper recipe, I am sure will make this quite often. I hope to participate in SNC's upcoming challenged, keeping my fingers crossed ;-)

Cooks Wisdom

- Incase your lassi does not have the yellow tint from the saffron u can add a pinch of yellow food color but its not a healthy addition.
- Make sure the milk and nice and chill, if you are using full fat milk you can skip the cream
