Mango-Mint Lassi with Indian Sweet Spices
It's a great take on the famous Mango Lassi that you tend to see at various Indian restaurants because it takes the flavor to a higher and much more complex level.
Slow Cooker Chai
Easy version of chai tea, using whole spices and sweetened condensed milk. To vary the flavor, try adding a bit of star anise, fennel, allspice, vanilla bean, or nutmeg. For a sweeter tea, stir in a bit of brown sugar.
Here is a basic recipe for Indian Lassi (yogurt drink). You can add more or less yogurt or water for a thicker or thinner beverage. For a salty lassi, you can substitute 1/2 teaspoon salt for the sugar. Garnish with fresh mint if desired.
Chocolate Chai Coffee Mix
I was craving Starbucks® chocolate chai tea latte when I made this. It is not a copycat recipe, simply tasty and easy. International Delight® 'Sweet Cream' is fabulous in this, if you like sweet coffee. Cardamom gives it the slight licorice taste; if you omit it, that's fine too.
Who doesn't like a mango lassi, right? But when you don't have good fresh mangos or can't find mango puree, why not try a banana lassi? I ordered 2 in a restaurant in Udaipur because they were so good and it was because they had no mangos at the time -- what a find!
Haldi Ka Doodh (Hot Turmeric Milk)
A great home remedy beverage for cough, congestion, colds and skin problems. This winter replace your usual hot cocoa with an invigorating cup of wellness. Bonus points for jammies and slippers. Turmeric can stain clothing and counter tops, so wear an apron; proceed with caution.
Chai Tea Latte
This is really similar to the brand Oregon® Chai. Simply delicious either hot or iced! This will save you more money than buying the chai. In India, each family has their own way of making it, so you should experiment to find your favorite blend.
Chai Tea Concentrate
Convenient (and relatively inexpensive) way to have chai 'lattes' at home. The cardamom can be a bit expensive; try looking in the bulk section of a health food store. If you need to buy a jar of it, don't worry - it will make several batches!
Restaurant Style Mango Lassi
A lot of recipes tell you to use fresh mangos. THIS is the mistake! I've been doing it that way for years and it is very difficult to get around the chalkiness of the mangos. By going to the pulp, it is a no brainer!
