Chabeel is a refreshing rose flavored summer drink made with just 3 ingredients. Apart from being a great thirst quencher this drink is known for its coolant properties.
What is Chabeel
Chabeel also known as Kachi Lassi is a sweetened and flavored non-alcoholic summer drink. There are many variations of this drink but rose flavored one is the most popular which I am sharing in today's post. It is an extremely easy and awesome cooling drink made with just three ingredients - water, milk and rose syrup. Its a lovely light pink colored drink that is sweet in flavor and best served chilled.
The very first time I was introduced to this drink was in Gurudwara. During summers, Chabeel most times is part of the langar in remembrance of the martyrdom of Guru Arjan Dev Ji, the fifth Guru of Sikhs. In addition to Gurudwara, its a common site in Northern India to see multiple stalls distributing Kachi Lassi to the commuters/passerby's to soothe their parched throats. More like the lemonade stands we see in USA just that Chabeel is always given free as its considered a social service of highest order.
Chabeel is a mix of just three ingredients water, milk and rose syrup. The rule here is it has to be more water than milk. The consistency should be more like diluted milk. The rose syrup I've used for this recipe is RoohAfza which is already sweet so I didn't add any sugar. But you can add sugar to taste depending on type of rose syrup you are using.
It is known as a great thirst quencher and for its coolant properties. It not only helps keep the body cool during the hot summery weather but also helps in reducing acidity.
