Mango is in season, So I thought to share one another recipe of Mangos. And this time it is Mango Lassi.
Traditionally, Lassi is made with Yoghurt, Gulab Jal, Sugar and topped with Cream and Mawa.
Not to mention, Mango Lassi is a blend of Yoghurt, Mango, Dry fruits and few aromatic spices.
Few of upcoming Recipes are Mango Srikhand, Mango Barfi, Mango Laddoo, Mango Roll and maybe more.
This Beverage is my MOST FAVOURITE ONE. Most of the time, I made it at home and every time I LOVE this creamy combination of Mango, Yoghurt and some spices.
About the Recipe
It is one of the Healthiest Beverage to have in Morning Breakfast.
This Mango-flavoured Lassi is cool and Refreshing and most requisite Summer Drink.
The recipe takes 5 minutes to prepare and 5 minutes to make. So, it is a complete 10/10.
Lassi became popular from Punjab and Pakistan, is now relished by every household of India.
In ancient times Lassi was churned in Wooden Hand Whisk and It is believed in Hindu Mythology, that It was a favourite drink of Lord Krishna too.
Still, in a few places like Vrindavan, Mathura, people make the lassi in a very traditional way. Using the Recipe mentioned below, you can create Smoothies too.
A few Tips by Me
Mangos like Alphonso, Kesar tastes best in this MANGO LASSI.
To make it without Blender, whisk the curd well with a Balloon Whisk. Add a cup of Mango Puree for one glass of Lassi, Dry fruits, Cardamom Powder, Rosewater, Sugar and Whisk them again until froth appears on top.
If, in case you don’t have Mangos at Home, you can use Mango Icecream too. Blend a or two scoops of Mango Icecream with a cup of Yogurt and the spices. Take out in a glass and you can top them with Icecream and Dry fruits too. (option)
You can add a scoop of Vanilla or Mango Icecream in the Blender Jar to make it more creamy and thicker.
To make it Vegan, you can replace yogurt with any Vegan Substitutes. Use Curd of Coconut or Soya. Any Non-Diary curd will make this recipe. But the taste will be very much different than the original one.
If you are Diabetics, you can drink the Lassi without sugar too. I prefer to drink it without Sugar only. The sweetness in Mango itself brings Natural Sweetness in the Lassi. Or, you can replace sugar with Black Salt and Black Pepper. It will taste different but will have a glass-licking taste too.
