Last day we had some visitors from US and they couldn't get the feel of Xmas in the summer heat of Australia....Even though winter is not so conspicuous in South India, I too had the same feeling during our first Xmas here; as it was hard for me to imagine a Xmas time in the scorching sun...Still summer is more preferable here than Winter times...As you can enjoy the beautiful beaches in summer only!!!
I had tasted lassie so many times before.....But was not so fond of it until recently when I had Mango lassie from an Indian restaurant and I had emptied the glass in seconds :)
I just couldnt wait to give it a try back home ..... As mangoes were not there for today, I tried with Watermelon...It was equally refreshing...& a nice way to beat the heat in Australia...
So lets get ready for the summer with a Lassie recipe here....
- Watermelon - 4 big chunks ( seedless ...approximately 3 cups)
- Yogurt (Curd) - 1/2 cup
- Sugar - 4 tsp (alter as per your taste)
- Salt - a pinch
- Pepper Powder - a pinch
- Cardamom Powder - a pinch
- Honey - 1 tsp (optional)
Just blend all the ingredients in a mixer and serve chilled !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
