Learning some new flavors

photo (4)eThursday night I attended a vegetarian Indian cooking class which was so interesting and fun.  Though I cook Indian food and have tried many recipes, there are so many different regional and varied foods I certainly haven’t been exposed to even a fraction of them so I loved learning some new flavor combinations and recipes.   Everything that we made and enjoyed Thursday night was wonderful but one of the big hits of the evening and new for me, was the mint lassi which was served at the beginning of the class.  This summer I have been slurping down Mango Lassi, Melon Agua Fresca and Watermelon Frosties and now added to my sippy obsession is Mint Lassi.  This Tuesday night I’m attending another Indian cooking class, this time cooking with lamb.  I’m super excited and can’t wait to see what the big standout recipe of the night will be.      

IMG_8955eI enjoyed the mint lassi so much on Thursday that the past few mornings I’ve gone out to our weed patch garden to pick mint so that I could enjoy the lassi again and again.  This mint lassi is just a bit sweet, refreshing, yet creamy and light, a perfect drink for a hot summer day.  I posted a recipe for the Mint Lassi on Cook Lisa Cook so make it and enjoy it on a hot summer afternoon.

This recipe along with many other delicious ones can be found over on Cook Lisa Cook.  Check out some of my other recent recipes: Mango Lassi, Stir-Fried Asparagus with Water Chestnuts, Ginger & Cashews, Curried Roast Chicken Pieces with Spicy Sweet Potato & Carrots, Grilled Corn & Bacon Pudding, Oriental Chicken Salad, Potato Salad with Bacon, Coffee Crusted Steak, Home Style Chicken Curry, Watermelon FrostyMango Gazpacho, Toll House Double Stuff Oreo Brownies, Long Beans with Walnuts, Blacksmith Pizza, Rhubarb Crisp, Laksa, Math Book No Bake Cookies and Aloo Gobi.
