Recipes

This is a documentation of some recipes to satisfy my new found interest in cooking.

  • Ingredients
    • 1 cup yogurt
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • few ice cubes
  • Mix all the ingredients and whisk. Don't use blender. Blender makes a smoothie but Lassi has these small yogurt granules that add to the taste. 
  • You can also add a pinch of salt if you like.

    • 1/2 teaspoon amchur powder
    • Salt to taste
