So, What Is Lassi?

Lassi is a blended yoghurt drink that is extremely popular in India, especially in Northern India. It is prepared by combining curd, water, salt, sugar, and a few seasonings or spices. There are numerous ways to make this drink. Lassi can be made sweet or salty. It is also made with a fruit and yoghurt combination. Many people prefer the sweet version, and some enjoy salted lassi. We often make lassi with a wooden churner and blender during the hot summer months because of its cooling properties.

Sweet Lassi, also known as Meethi lassi in Hindi, is a rich and creamy drink made of yoghurt and milk (or water) that has been sweetened with sugar and flavoured with cardamom powder. Sweet lassi, as the name implies, has a sweet taste and is more akin to a dessert drink. It's thick, creamy, heavier, more like a milkshake consistency, and quite filling on its own or with a meal, and it goes perfectly with Indian spices. Most importantly, it is extremely tasty, refreshing, and satisfying to your thirst and sweet cravings!

Tips For Making Lassi in Hand Blender

The following advice will help you make lassi at home using a hand blender:

  • Use a tall and narrow container to fit your hand blender to create a frothy consistency.
  • Use homemade full-fat curd that is fresh and not overly sour in flavor. Sour yoghurt will require more sugar to give sweetness. 
  • To make a creamier lassi, combine chilled whole milk (full fat) and curd.
  • If you prefer a lighter lassi, replace the full-fat curd and milk with reduced-fat or low-fat curd and milk.
  • Reduce the amount of water or milk used to make a thicker lassi.
  • Do not over-blend the lassi to avoid thin consistency. 
  • You can flavour your lassi with a dash of rose water and a few strands of saffron. 
  • If you want to make a larger quantity, you can blend the ingredients in smaller quantities and then mix them together in a big container.
  • To save time, you can pre-mix the ingredients and keep them in the refrigerator until you're ready to blend and serve.
