Watermelon Lassi

When I was away on vacation, hubby dear was left alone to fend for himself. Hubby does not like to eat out often, so he decided to cook for himself. And almost on daily basis he used to make himself some dosas or idlis (with store bought batter of course!) and finish off his dinner with a bowl of watermelon. When I came back, I saw the refrigerator stacked with 2 large watermelons, and since hubby dear had eaten throughout the month he was in no mood to have more of them. So it was left to me and kids to finish these off. Kids and I both had our fill and still there was enough and more left behind. That’s when I saw this recipe for Watermelon Lassi on T.V..I decided to give it a try and it turned out to be an instant hit with everyone wanting another serving (including H). So here is the recipe:




What you need:

1. Watermelon pieces – 2 cups
2. Fresh Curds – 1 cup
3. Sugar – 1 tblsp
4. Ice cubes – a few

Method

Blend the watermelon pieces with sugar and ice cubes. Next add the fresh curds and pulse it for a few more seconds. Strain into a glasses. Refreshing Watermelon Lassi is ready. Serve it chilled.


Note: Adjust Sugar according to your taste. Since watermelons are naturally sweet, you wouldn’t require too much sugar.
