New Delhi: It is that time of the year when the entire atmosphere is filled in vibrant hues. Yes! It is Holi time. This year, the festival of colours will be celebrated on March 1 but the preparations start a day before. Holi also is a great day to relish sumptuous delicacies.
There's one thing which everyone talks about on Holi, and that is 'Bhang'. So, we thought of compiling the 'Bhang Lassi' recipe which can be made at home.
Cannabis (Bhang), 1/2 ounce
Warm whole milk, 2 cups
Sugar, 1/2 cup
Coconut milk, 1 tablespoon
Chopped almonds, 1 tablespoon
Powdered ginger, 1/8 teaspoon
Garam masala, a pinch
Grenadine, 1/2 teaspoon
Water, 1 cup
Bring water to a boil in a teapot. Add cannabis to the water. Brew for about 8 to 10 minutes. Strain the mixture.
Gradually grind the strained cannabis along with 2 tablespoons of milk. Repeat the process several times.
Strain the milk into another bowl. Keep it aside.
Add a little more milk to the cannabis. Grind it along with the chopped almonds. Repeat the process a few times.
Remove the cannabis. Pour the milk, coconut milk, grenadine and boiled water into a container.
Add the sugar, ginger and garam masala to it. Continue stirring the mixture until smooth.
The Bhang Lassi is ready to serve!
