I bought some organic mangoes this weekend. Some?? Hmm actually 5 kgs to be specific. 😉 Its difficult to get some good mangoes in Hyderabad and we are lucky enough to get it this time. The mangoes are absolutely yum. I just love making beverages using mangoes and my husband likes eating mangoes. So we especially bought some over riped mangoes to make lassi, milkshake etc.

The first thing I made after buying those mangoes was mango lassi. Its a perfect soothing drink to beat the summer heat. Its creamy and so heavenly, one of the best ways to use over riped mangoes and having curd. I like my lassi to be yellow in color but not all the mangoes gives a good color. If you want a good yellow color of the lassi, its better to use mangoes which has bright yellow pulp. I have used dasheri mangoes, pulp of which has a bright color. It gives a perfect color after its blended with curd.

I don’t like using cardamom powder, dry fruits or saffron. I like my lassi plain and simple. I also prefer using sugar and not honey. I don’t use any cream. You can add all of these in your lassi if you want to. I also love adding some chopped small cubes of mango to the lassi after its ready. Bits of mango pulp hitting your palate makes the lassi even more delicious 😍 This is totally optional but why would you want to skip it? 😉

I know everyone is aware of the recipe still sharing here the way I make it 🙂

Ingredients:

1 cup mango pulp
1 cup curd
Milk to get the desired consistency
Sugar to taste
Chopped mango cubes of one small mango

Method:

Blend curd, mango pulp and sugar together. Check the consistency and add milk accordingly. Blend nicely again.
Once blended well, add the chopped mangoes to the lassi and using a spoon, just mix them together. Pour in a serving glass/bowl, garnish with some chopped mangoes and serve chilled.
