My Bloggy Baby Is One Month Old Today!!!
Before a year I dint knew what r blogs, as I would come across something interesting I would immediately subscribe for their email updates. Happily was following every blogs updates happy to try them out as well. When I started Studying blogs and their nature how it works, I found so many bloggers for food blogs alone???? surprising bloggers posting and re posting recipes it was all strange to me. Many A time I tot of having my own blog but dropped my plan seeing so many other blogs existing with no reviews from audience, Wat a sad moment for bloggers when they take pain to post something and there is no comments for appreciation left. I would take pleasure to comment on such blogs but at same time it would discourage me from owning my own blog.
Until one fine morning I came across Nabanita Das's blog Esho-Bosho-Aahare and read some encouraging articles there. She is such a kind soul to reply my comments via mail and make me understand how blogs work. She also encouraged me start a new blog as well. Which I started without even thinking for a moment. Though the reason was different for this move but after entering the blogging world all other things looks secondary. What is more important now is Im enjoying myself and also participating in events. After knowing everything abt this bloggy world the only thing came to my mind was!! What the hell I was doing past 5years??? 5yrs coz thats when I started social networking lolz. Thank you Nabanita for showing me the door of this world its more than an eye opener for me.
Past is past lets talk about present. And the Present is Im suppose to share my post here :)
Its so hot mom makes sure to bring fruits from market and ask me to make juice. If not juice Moor/ Buttermilk. But Sunday needs to be a little special. So I had set Curd a day ahead. I was fully in plan to make lassi for Sunday. Little bit confused regarding the flavorings. Previously made Kesar Elaichi Lassi which turned out great!!! I dint had kesar elaichi combo then so I shifted my plans to Rooh afzah. Still I wasnt sure how it might turn out, Did some googling and was ok to make a start. So here It goes
Curd - 1.5 - 2 cups
Milk - 2 cups
Water - 1.5 to 2 cups
Sugar - 2 table spoon +/- according to your taste
Rooh Afzah - 2 tablespoon
Roasted Almonds - 2 tablespoon roughly chopped
- Blend In Curd, Milk, Water and Sugar I used my tall juicer. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk or water if you find it very thick or sourness is more.
- Remove in a Big Bowl Add in Rooh Afza and mix check for sugar, sourness add more ingredients which suits your taste best.
- Refrigerate The drink and serve chill
- Mix in almonds before serving (see notes)
-No Rock Hard Rules to be followed while making this, Be Easy To your taste
-After adding everything lassi was still little bit of sour which got corrected when I served along with Ice cubes.
-Since almonds R not blanched and peeled adding almonds from bfr itself might leave the skin after getting soaked up. The skin of almonds might float on top making it overall disaster.
- If you dont want to use roasted almonds then simply blanch the almonds and slice them up still will taste crunchy munchy
- If you want More Pinker Version add more and more of rooh afza till you reach the right pitch. But here again you will need to adjust the sugar by reducing it. Coz adding more milk or curd (white) would only make the hue light pink and not dark.
It yielded 4 tall glasses of lassi for my family. Adding ice cubes floating on top gave a majestic look to the whole thing.
Yummy Almond Rooh afza Lassi. With Perfect blend to beat the summer heat.
And Crunchy Almonds complimenting the whole subject :)
Every Sip Was Just Wonderful :)
Im in a platform to explore more n more things from expert bloggers here :)
