I have never been very fond of lassis but in New York I found out that the reason is simply the fact that I have only ever gotten too sweet lassis before I visited restaurant Gandhi with Heidi and some of her friends. We had some good time and an excellent dinner and it was very nice to hear about the food we were eating. So I write this in English in order to be able say thank you for a great evening.
So, how would I make a nice lassi at home? I googled for proportions and found Jame Oliver's mango lassi recipe. There were fresh mangos at Stockmann but I chose a jar of mango jam and the ginger addict in me picked up a jar of ginger jam from a shelf. If it has ginger in it it cannot be bad, remember?
8 dl fatty, organic yogurt (I used the stuff that the Finnish bloggers often call partaäijä i.e. bearded old man
4 dl full fat milk
3 tbsp mango jam
2 tbsp ginger jam
Mix everything together well.
Enjoy. This was a good drink and not too sweet at all, some might think it's too sour. Maybe a tad too thick and I must try fresh mangos when I have more time. A lazy, but a nice version. Oishikatta 3/5.
For once I had the energy to set up a tripod and use a slow shutter time. I also digged up my best piece of glass for this picture, the AF Micro Nikkor 60 mm, it's old and weighs 42 metric tonnes but it is a good objective. However, I am not happy about the picture; I should have used more time for it.
