What is the difference between Piyush and Lassi


At first glance, Piyush and Lassi seem to be the exact same drink. However, Piyush is made from shrikhand and is thicker and sweeter than lassi.

Sweet Lassi is a Punjabi speciality and is made purely from yogurt, sugar and milk. It is often served with white butter on the top. It can then take on many different flavours, such as caramel, rose, mango, just to name a few.

What goes in Piyush Lassi


1. Full fat greek yogurt - greek yogurt has moderate sour and sweet flavours thus it suits so well for this recipe.

2. Double or whipping cream

3. Whole milk

4. Nuts such as almond, pistachio

5. Saffron

6. Cardamom powder

7. Sugar

How to serve Piyush


Piyush is best served alongside a spicy curry. We served it with crispy Maru style Bhajiyas.

What can I use instead of greek yogurt?


You may use any plain full fat yogurt for this recipe.

I don't have cream, what else can I use instead?


You may use malai instead of cream.

How long can I store Piyush?


We kept our piyush in the fridge for around 5 days in an airtight container to prevent the smell of the fridge settling in the drink.

Just mix through again before serving in case the drink has separated.

We used our leftover Piyush in flavouring our Marwari Dum Aloo (instead of adding sugar and yogurt) to give it a real royal flourish!

How to make Piyush Lassi step by step


1. In a big bowl take double cream.

2. Whisk it till fluffy and creamy.

3. Add sugar, yogurt, saffron and cardamom powder.

4. Whisk everything.

5. Add milk and whisk again till you get smooth and silky lassi.

6. Add slivered nuts, chill and serve.
