Myself, Maya from Foodiva Kitchen and Trix from Tasty Trix as decided to post something from the cookbook, Tropical Asian Cookbook on the same day and time. It’s just for fun and a little different. This little challenge has given me more insight into one of my favourite non-alcoholic drink, lassi. Lassi is a very popular Punjabi yoghurt drink. It is usually very popular with Indian or Pakistani food and can be either sweet or savory.

I bought 500g of pistachios. Most of them was consumed while making this drink :)

Lassi comes in so many flavours and not just the mango lassi that I usually order at the Indian restaurant. I will definitely be keen to try the savory version where salt and cumin are added to the yogurt drink. Even this rose flavoured one is something that I have not tried. The lassi is only very slightly hinted by the rose. The pistachio gave this creamy drink a nice crunchy texture. I actually crushed and added more pistachio as I shared it with Mister. Super yummy and will be making more soon!

By the way, what are you doing this Valentine?
