Patiyala Lassi & Happy Independence Day, India!

I got this beautiful earthenware pot at our Indian stores. The store owner suggested making "khichdi" as it adds a special flavor. I am definitely going to try it. but I thought of making something special for Lord Krishna yesterday and made some homemade yogurt in the earthenware pot. Now, that summer is here, the yogurt was set beautifully so I decided to make lassi.

Patiyala Lassi
Yogurt-Saffron Smoothie
2 cups plain yogurt
1 cup milk
2 tbsp sugar or sweetener of your choice (like honey or agave nectar)
4-5 cardamoms, peeled & crushed
1/4 tsp saffron strands
1/8 tsp salt
1. Whisk all the ingredients together.
2. Serve chilled.
Note -
1. For richer taste, use milk and yogurt with a higher fat contents.
2. I used yogurt made in the earthenware container. It surely adds a special taste & touch! But ready made yogurt will work too.
3. Use more or less sugar per your taste.
4. Instead of sugar, sweetened condensed milk works well too.
Happy Independence Day, India!!
