Yes, both lassi and panna cotta in a single drink. Whether you want to beat the sweltering heat or the bolt of winter chills that makes you snuggle, it always has to be a delightful mouth-watering dessert. To satisfy this craving what better than rose lassi panna cotta.

Panna cotta is a classic Italian dessert of sweetened cream thickened with gelatine and moulded. Panna cotta is a perfect dessert because it is luscious, perfectly creamy in a way that belies its utter simplicity. Lassi is a traditional yoghurt-based drink, often touted as the oldest smoothie in the world. Originating in Punjab around 1000 BC-2000 BC traditionally served in matkas has miraculous powers that can cool you instantly. Aforementioned is probably the reason why even Ayurveda considers it to be a great beverage. So, this is my version of Indo – Italian dessert.

Rose Lassi panna cotta is best when you are so hot that you can barely think, when your body is sheathed in a thin film of warm sweat, when the exterior of the glass you hold in your hand, filled just moments before, is also entirely wet from the condensation of the swampy air. There is no better time to try out this fusion drink than when the weather approximates the sweltering summers.

These words might have sounded like it’s a drink which you can only try in the summers but wait if you are bored of having the regular piping hot chocolate or coffee or tea to keep yourself warm through winter then you have this Indo – Italian drink.

Although you think when you hear the name Rose Lassi panna cotta, that it is probably a very complicated recipe yet it is an effortless one.

The cardamom powder gives a perfect hint of balance to the drink. A special note for people trying it out in summer is to add some ice cubes to get the maximum soothing taste of this intensely delicious drink.
