Lassi - My Holi Special!!!

Cost of Preparation: 30-40 Rupees
Preparation Time: 10-15 mins
Makes : 2 glasses

Lassi in Orissa is quite different from the one served in the North. During Summer months, all these small tents come up all around the main markets in the cities. . One which comes to a speedy recall is the 'Lingaraj Lassi' in Bhubneshwar. They sell this fantastic variety of lassi ( complete with rabri, grated coconut and crushed biscuits ). Well....i can say that if you grew up in such a place, you would acquire a taste for it.

I have tried out two low calorie variants of this yummy lassi which i served to friends who came to wish us on Holi.

For the coconut & choclate lassi:















Ingredients: Curd ( 1 1/2 cup ), milkmaid ( condensed milk, 3-4 tbs ), grated coconut ( 1 cup ), grated Cadburys chocolate ( 3-4 tsp ), vanilla icecream ( 2 scoops ), sugar/sugar-free ( 2 tsp or equivalent ), ice cubes.

Preparation: Churn the curd, milkmaid, suagr/sugar-free and 1 cup of water along with 2-3 ice-cubes till frothy. ( Do not add too many ice-cubes, it will turn the lasssi watery. )

Pour into glasses till 3/5th full. Add the icecream over it to make it 4/5th full. Add the grated coconut and chocolate to the remaining 1/5th part.

Serve immediately.

For the cinnamon cookies & dry fruits lassi:
















Ingredients: Curd ( 1 1/2 cup ), milkmaid ( condensed milk, 3-4 tbs ), crushed cinnamon cookies ( 3/4 cup ), sliced almonds & cashews ( 1/4 cup ), raisins ( 1/5 cup ), vanilla icecream ( 2 scoops ), sugar/sugar-free ( 2 tsp or equivalent ), ice cubes.

Preparation: Soak the raisins for 2-3 hrs

Churn the curd, milkmaid, suagr/sugar-free and 1 cup of water along with 2-3 ice-cubes till frothy. ( Do not add too many ice-cubes, it will turn the lasssi watery. ) Add the soaked raisins and churn for 5 secs.

Pour into glasses till 3/5th full. Add the icecream over it to make it 4/5th full. Add the crushed cookies and sliced dry fruits to the remaining 1/5th part.

Serve immdiately.
