Using edible flowers in Beverages is a common thing to do. So, here’s a beverage recipe that’s got some real flower power in it! Rose Lassi, a flowery variation to the basic lassi is another cooling yogurt-based drink that also has the enticing flavors of the rose flower – in the form of rose petals and rose syrup. And because there’s rose in this lassi, it is also super fragrant and refreshing too. This lassi variant is super quick to make and looks lovely too.
This tasty and cooling rose lassi is made with fresh curd, rose petals, rose syrup, sugar and dry fruits.
Lassi is very popular in north India during the summer. There are many variations of it and rose lassi is one such variation. I have also posted a few more lassi variations like:
In this recipe of rose lassi, both the rose syrup and yogurt are cooling. You can add rose syrup in plain milk or Rose milk or in Falooda recipe also. When it comes to the curd, I suggest using homemade fresh curd for this lassi.
Rose Lassi is one of the easiest beverage recipes. You just have to add everything in the blender jar and give it a good swirl until a smooth and frothy lassi is formed. As the rose syrup is sweet too, you can adjust the sugar according to the level of sweetness you want in the lassi.
Make sure that the rose petals that you are drying to use in the lassi are organic and free of any chemical. Best is to use it from your own garden if you have.
If you want then you can ice cubes to serve it more chilled. Serve rose lassi immediately or you can store it in the fridge and have it later.
How to make Rose Lassi
1. Take 1.5 cups of fresh chilled curd in a mixer or blender jar.
2. Add 1 cup chilled water, 10 to 12 dried rose petals or 5 to 6 fresh rose petals, 1 teaspoon rose water and 3 tablespoons of rose syrup.
I did not add ice cubes, hence I added 1 cup of chilled water. if adding ice cubes then add ½ cup water. The dried rose petals are from my terrace garden. I dry them in shade and then add them to kheers or the sweets that I prepare.
3. Blend everything till smooth and till the lassi becomes frothy. You can make the lassi thick or thin by adjusting the amount of water.
Instead of water, you can also add milk or half-half of water and milk.
4. Pour the lassi in glasses and Serve rose lassi with some sliced or chopped dry fruits like almonds, pistachios or cashews.
