Ingredients

  • 1 Cup ripe mango pulp
  • 1 Cup plain yogurt (curd), chilled
  • 1/4 Cup milk, chilled
  • granulated white sugar, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon green cardamom powder (elaichi powder)
  • a pinch of saffron (kesar)
  • 5 - 6 ice-cubes

Instructions

  • Soak saffron in a tablespoon of milk for 3 - 5 minutes
  • Combine mango pulp, yogurt, milk, sugar, cardamom powder and saffron in a blender. 
  • Blend until smooth. Taste and add more sugar if required. Add ice cubes and blend for a second. 
  • Serve mango lassi chilled. 

Notes

  • Canned mangoes usually come with sugar syrup, in that case, do not add additional
    sweeteners to the mix without prior tasting.
  • Don’t use sour curd; it will ruin the balance of flavors in Lassi. 
  • Adding milk is optional. 
  • You can add approximately 1/4 cup of condensed milk while blending, to make lassi even more thick and delicious
  • If you want to add to the indulgence, serve with a spoonful of thick cream on
    top or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  • A drizzle of rose water or rose essence adds a burst of freshness, do try it out
