orange ,papaw …. Sweetened with sugar or

ORANGE LASSI


Refreshing drinks are the need of the season

now in Chennai.

Fizzy drinks and bottled drinks is a big ‘No‘ in

my home.It’s always fresh fruit,vegetable,lassi,

or buttermilk.

So, I keep mixing and matching fruits and

vegetables to make juices .( at times I don’t

have time for photos, and not able to upload).

Well,for today’s absolute refreshing lassi.

Before I go any further I would like to enlighten

the word lassi for those who don’t know .

It relates to a pet name for some ,but in India

it means thick curd whipped with salt or sugar .

It is really a great refresher served with fruits

nuts or served plain with its uniqueness !

Healthy and excellent body coolant.

You could use your favourite fruit to make this!

1 cup curd

2 oranges

A pinch of salt

2-3 tblsp palm candy sugar (use sweetness of your choice)
