Dining Down Under: Rosewater, Cardamon and Pistachio Lassi

A refreshing and calming drink for when you’re hot and bothered.
By Christina Soong-Kroeger

It’s hot and I’m bothered.
I want instant refreshment, instant karma (calmer).

I need something to cool me down.

But what?

Let’s see: I have Greek yoghurt in the fridge and an unopened bottle of rosewater in the larder.

Aha! A Rosewater Lassi.

Quickly now. Make it. Drink it.

Ahhh. That’s better.
