Best with a little saffron added.

Do you add the saffron straight, or do you emerge it in a little hot water for 5min and add the lot, as is usual?

For me this just tasted like some yoghurt with water added to it! The corriander on top all ended up being dug out. However, it is great for soothing a burning mouth and everyone finished theirs.

This is the perfect refreshing drink to accompany a spicy curry, easy to make too.
