Beverages, Sizzling Tastebuds

Lassi Patiala | Chilled yoghurt beverage from Haryana

Just as Punjab is the land of 5 rivers, Haryana is derived from “Hari”
and “Ayana” meaning Abode of God. And Haryanvi cuisine, atleast from the local
heartland depicts just that : rustic, pure and divine. Abundant use of dairy
and dairy products is seen. Paneer is an essential part of their cuisine, just
like Punjab, and my friend from that state tells me that pure food (veg or non
veg) is simple and earthy like Kadhi Pakora, Bathua Raita, Singri ki Sabji, Lassi etc.


Lassi is an integral part of Haryanvi cuisine – Almost every meal
ends with a large glass of Lassi (or thick yoghurt whipped and flavoured with
either salt or sugar). Lassi Patiala is today’s BM post, and is an unusual
combo of yoghurt and saffron and milk. Elaichi powder is also added to this.

I made a small batch at home today, and was immensely enjoyed after
dinner. Linking this to PJ who is hosting my event “My

    I love those images. Call me crazy but somehow the stuff looks rather like ice than the yogurt and that's why I love those images.

Thanks so much for dropping by.
