Rose-Flavored Yogurt Lassi
If you cannot find rose water, substitute your favorite syrup. Lassi has a short shelf life and is best served fresh.
Serves: 4Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 2 hours 10 minutesDifficulty: Easy
- 4 cups plain yogurt
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1½ Tbsp. rose water
- ½ cup water
- 5–6 ice cubes
- Rose petals, for garnish
- Line a sieve with several layers of cheesecloth. Place the yogurt in the sieve and suspend over a bowl.
- Let any liquid drain into the bowl, then discard the liquid. Tie the ends of the cheesecloth to form a pouch. Weigh it down using a few cans in a plastic bag as weight. Let it sit for about 2 hours to allow any remaining liquid to drain out. Remove the cheesecloth.
- In a blender, combine the yogurt, sugar, rose water, water, and ice cubes; blend well. Add more water if you like a thinner consistency. Serve garnished with rose petals.
