Pale Green Spicy Minty Lassi

Spicy Minty lassi
Happy Weekend Everyone!!! How have you guys planned the weekend ? a lazy relaxed one or hyper active one? I know its a late post for me in the week , and i have never in my 2 plus years of blogging have composed a post at midnight. I am just back home from a fun filled Friday night party and the remaining weekend and the coming days looks so promising that  if I don't squeeze in some time for this post now , it wont happen for some days.

Look at this oh so green and fresh mint leaves from my garden ♥♥

Fresh Mint from my garden

Well the dog days are here with heat waves just flaring up and it doesn't seem to budge any time soon. I couldn't appreciate the little cocktail book I have more than now, ever . 

What is the "two minute" wonder drink that keeps you refreshed and rejuvenated in this sultry weather? How about a spicy minty lassi with "store bought and fried at home" vegetable samosas to go with it? The recipe is from Madhur Jaffreys' and I made it with fresh green chiles and mint leaves from my lil garden. Instead, you can make it a bit more easily by adding 2-3 table spoons of store bought  mint chutney too..How easy breezy is that? And trust me this is an awesome combo to serve to your guest too.
