LET'S GET STARTED
– 3 dates – 1.5 cups whole milk yogurt – 1.5 tbsp gulkand/rose preserve heaped tbsp – ¼ to ½ cup water – 1 tsp dried rose petals Measurement details: 1 cup = 240ml; 1 tbsp = 15ml; 1 tsp = 5ml.
– Soak the dates. I used seeded dates and soaked the dates in warm water for 20 minutes. Then I removed the seeds and chopped them into small pieces. If you use deseeded and soft ones, you can skip this soaking step. Make sure to chop or tear the dates into pieces so that it doesn't get stuck in the blender blades.
– Blend and make lassi. Add the chopped dates, gulkand, yogurt, and ¼ cup of water to a blender. – Blend it thoroughly. I used my Blendtec and used the smoothie setting.
– Now check the consistency and, if required, add ¼ more cup of water and blend it again. – Transfer it to glasses, garnish it with dried rose petals, and serve right away.
