Mango Lassi Recipe
and Other Beverages

Beverages are a wonderful part of the Indian cuisine. Here are is a mango Lassi recipe and links to other recipes which refresh, whet one's appetite or make a perfect finish to the perfect meal. This drink is very nice as an appetizer. The tang of the yoghurt offsets the sweetness of the mango beautifully.

1 cup plain yoghurt
1/2 of a medium ripe mango, diced
2 Tablespoons sugar
8 ice cubes

Combine all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. To take out any lumps, put through a strainer, pushing out the liquid as you can.

Mangoes: Select a ripe mango for this mango lassi recipe. I have found it best to slice down one side of the mango, just next the large seed. Cut a crosshatch pattern on the slice and slice off the pieces from the skin. Also, you can use mango puree instead of fresh.

To increase or decrease the thickness of the lassi, adjust the amount of ice used.
