World Recipe Exchange: Indian Malai Lassi
Originating from the Indian region of Punjab, lassi has crossed borders and is now widely enjoyed in the homes of the Indian subcontinent and beyond. Made of dahi (yogurt), it is often taken as a health drink or after meals to aid digestion. It is served chilled, which makes it a perfect cooling and nutritious drink for hot summer days.
Lassi comes in many varieties and is often prepared using aromatic spices, such as cardamom or saffron, or with fruit. It can be also prepared with crushed almonds or pistachios. For the World Recipe Exchange, our host, Ashok, will prepare a luxury malai lassi, which will be served along with traditional Indian sweets and snacks.
Admission is free and all are welcome.
New to the World Recipe Exchange?
World Recipe Exchange is a programme of intercultural food events based at Ormston House. We bring people together to explore the international culinary heritage of Limerick and to create meeting spaces for people of all cultures. As we cook, taste and share food, we are also creating a database of recipes that originate from all corners of the world but are nowadays cooked side by side in the kitchens of our city.
Our programme celebrating European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 is supported by The Heritage Council.
