Bitter gourd curry and Peach lassi with cayenne pepper

The inspiration for this recipe comes from Kajal's post about the same curry.
I haven't changed the recipe a bit except that I didn't fry the bitter gourd.
I just peeled the bitter gourd a bit, sliced and baked it in the oven till it was cooked crisp. I also made the sabji little dry as I was gonna eat it with roti and dal.

Thanks Kajal, it does taste really good.
See the recipe here

I know you must be thinking what a weird combination is this. But these were made on two separate days, just posted together

I love lassi with different combination and looking at the weather, I thought it was time to venture into a new lassi making session

This Peach Lassi is my entry for JFI for August -Chillies hosted by Nandita of Saffrontrail and brainchild of Indira.
Thanks Suganya of Tastypalettes for reminding me this.

For the Peach lassi:

1 cup canned peaches or 2 fresh peaches. (both works well)
2 cups yogurt
sugar to your taste
kewra essence few drops
a pinch of cayenne pepper

Blend everything together in a blender along with couple of ice cubes.

Yes cayenne pepper gives this a nice kick. You can use more if you really like the heat.

Warning: Do not use the Rose water with this Lassi as it would be a disaster, unless you are an adventurous soul, who can drink those combinations.

Lassi is a unique creation. Since it has cayenne, any idea of sending this JFI-Chillies?
