What do you do when the party’s over and there’s just one serving of Shrikhand left? You make Piyush!

The Maharashtrian version of lassi, this thick, luscious drink is more like dessert. After a couple of spicy thaalipeeths or batata vadas, though, it can do wonders to cool the palate and prepare you for the afternoon siesta.


  • 1 serving of Shrikhand
  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • grated nutmeg

Blend everything until you have a thick smoothie. Pour into glass of choice, garnish if desired, serve immediately, and head straight for the bed.
