MANGO LASSI

Print Friendly and PDF
Lassi is famous in Punjab but liked across most parts of the country . Although we like the taste of sweet lassi , the amount of sugar that goes into it stops us from having it that frequently . We usually prefer the flavored ones (like Strawberry Lassi and Mango Lassi) more than plain lassi and is a must order for us when we have north Indian fare outside . I don't mind preparing lassi especially in the strawberry and mango season, as the sweetness from the fruits reduces the amount of sugar that goes into lassi.This is a very simple recipe which can be made in a jiffy and can make any meal more interesting and delicious.You can pair it with a sandwich or Rajma chawal for a whole and hearty meal.
While most of us like thick and creamy lassi,TH prefers a thinner version of lassi and if it is a fruit lassi he likes the mild flavored one.I know it is a bit strange but every one has their own preferences right ??Initially, I used to make the lassi separately for both of us and now I have also started enjoying the kind of lassi he prefers hence I prepare it the same way for both of us.I reduce the quantity of mango in lassi. which gives it just a flavor and I also add little water to get the desired consistency and that is the reason my lassi has a moderate yellow color.There is no fixed measurements for the recipe,you can play around with the quantities of those ingredients and prepare lassi according to your requirements.
MANGO LASSI Recipe:
(Serves 2)

Ingredients:
1 ripened Mango(Alphonsos or Kesar)
1 cup fresh and slightly sour Curd,chilled
1/2 cup Milk,chilled
1/4 cup chilled Water
3-4 tbsp Sugar
1 cardamom,crushed(only the seeds)
2 Ice cubes(optional)

Method:
  • Remove the skin of mango and cut into pieces.
  • In a juicer/mixer blend chopped mango with curd,milk,water,sugar and cardamom powder to a smooth mixture.
  • Check the sweetness and add more sugar if needed as the amount of sugar depends on the sweetness of mango.Also adjust the consistency by adding more curd/milk to suit your taste buds.
Serve it in a glass topped with ice cubes.I did not add in mine.
Notes:
  1. You can make plain lassi with the same procedure just avoiding mango.You can make a flavored kesar lassi by adding saffron strands while blending.
  2. Mango can be replaced by strawberries for delicious strawberry lassi.
  3. You can add 2-3 tbsp cream while blending mango lassi for a rich and creamier version.
  4. Always use a slightly sour curd for lassi to get that exact taste,otherwise it would taste like milkshake.
