If it’s hot outside you need to keep hydrated and lassis are the perfect accompaniment to Indian flavours. Anjum Anand’s blackberry lassi is light and refreshing- served over ice it’s an ideal barbecue drink.
Purée the berries, yoghurt, lemon and most of the sugar with 140ml water. Sweeten to taste. Pour through a sieve into glasses to remove the seeds. Serve chilled over ice cubes, topped with a mint leaf.
