Adding malai is optional. Malai is the layer collected from top of the milk. Instead of ice cubes you can add water but I prefer adding ice-cubes. For cardamom powder only the seeds are powdered and added. Perfect fresh curd/yogurts works great for this lassi.

  1. Oh goodness Vani! You made the typical lassi from north. While growing up, no lassi was complete without that thick layer of malai. Now a days we skip it for health reasons…but spot on girl! Love it!❤️
