Learn how to prepare kesar lassi, a rich filling drink made with saffron, yogurt and cardamom as main ingredients, with full video and step by step pictures.
I like sweet lassi very much, but not tangy. Just sweet, creamy and flavourful. I do not believe most of the restaurants, so never order a sweet lassi. I wanted to try kesar lassi for long time as I knew it will be really good with rich curd. When I bought greek yogurt, I wanted to try lassi with it since the texture of it is so different from our curd.
So when Alva’s curd sent me 3 of their tubs for trying, I thought to try out lassi as this Alva’s curd also has a thick and rich texture. Each tub has its malai layer on top which is so flavourful and tasty. I have wrote about Alva’s natural yogurt in my Instagram handle, you can have a look at it if you are interested.
