rosewater mandarin lassi

Rosewater mandarin lassi.

So... I'm back from my trip to Nepal!

I had a wonderful time and I am looking forward to sharing my pictures and stories, but for now I am overwhelmed as I go through all the photographs I have taken. I think I have nearly 1500 photographs from our 4-week trip, which is tough enough as it is, but spare a thought for Simon, who took about 9000, so he's really got his work cut out for him.

Hence, I will just leave you with a lassi recipe today - a yoghurt-based drink that is popular in many parts of South Asia (including Nepal). This rosewater mandarin version is one that I began making last autumn in Australia, taking advantage of the abundant and cheap mandarins in season, and I think it'll be part of my autumn repertoire for the years to come.

A soft, romantic mandarin and rose lassi to brighten and sooth the day.

rosewater mandarin lassi / smoothie (serves 1)

2 small mandarins (approx. 5cm / 2" diameter) or 1 larger mandarin
2/3 cup yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon rosewater
4 ice cubes

Peel mandarins and remove any seeds.
Blend mandarin segments, yoghurt, rosewater and ice cubes together until smooth.
Serve and feel good.

  7. That lassi sounds like it would smell heavenly - I am very jealous of your trip to nepal - though not so jealous of sorting through the photos - makes me feel better about the photos I have to sort which I don't think come near Simon's batch
