Rose and Cardamom Lassi


My previous post of Persian Love Cake had wonderful flavors of Rose water, Cardamom, Orange Zest and Saffron. I decided to take two of those to make this another magical creation. The Lassi is infused with delicate Rose petals and dew drenching flowery aroma of Cardamom. 



Did you know, India used to be the largest producer of Cardamom before the spice was introduced to Guatemala before World War I when Guatemala became the largest producer. It is one of those exotic spices which can be used in Sweet as well as Savory dishes.


  • Buttermilk 2 cups Low fat
  • Cardamom 2 pods
  • Rose petals about 10
  • Ice few cubes
  • Sugar 1 Tsp


  • Remove seeds from Cardamom and grind them using spice grinder or mortar and Pestle.
  • In a mixer, add Buttermilk, Cardamom seeds, Rose Petals, Ice Cubes and Sugar. Mix until Rose petals are thoroughly blended.
  • Serve garnished with Rose petals.
