Piyush Recipe

Published on: October 29, 2014 | Updated on: May 23, 2015


Curd or dahi is used all over India in different preparations. It is considered good for your stomach as it cools down the digestive system and gives a much needed respite from the Indian curries and spice rich dishes. If we look at north, we find curd drinks like lassi in sweet and salt form, in the south we see curd rice and. Raita is common throughout the country while plain and flavoured yogurts are available in most markets.

For this recipe I used srikhand and butter milk both prepared with curd to make Piyush, a sweet drink used widely in Gujarat. It is similar to lassi. However, srikhand makes it much more dense and sweeter. It is a great beverage to kick start your day and will go well with most Indian meals. Add some nutmeg powder, elaichi, kesar, dry fruits for taste and it comes out simply wow. I loved this drink and so did everyone else at home, for sure you would also like it. Use this simple Piyush Recipe and enjoy a perfect Gujarati taste at your home.
