Saffron Lassi



Saffron is one of those wonderful spices that is very expensive and something I often wonder how to use. I have seen this drink on a few Indian blogs over the years and since I had recently bought some saffron I decided to give it a try. Its an easy and elegant drink, the slightly bitter and delicate saffron flavor is well balanced with the sweet milk, cardamon and sugar.

Ingredients:

  • one cup of Greek yogurt 
  • 1/4 cup of warm milk
  • 5-6 saffron strands
  • a pinch of ground cardamon
  • a few almonds or any nut to garnish 
  • a handful of ice cubes 
  • a little milk to obtain desired consistency 
  • one tablespoon sugar 
Method:

  1. heat a little milk in the microwave to warm and add the saffron to it, it will diffuse and color the milk
  2. add the yogurt, saffron infused milk, cardamon powder and sugar to a blender and blend until frothy 
  3. then add a little milk if too thick
  4. garnish with nuts and a little more saffron. 
  5. for fun garnish with an edible flower
