How to Make a Mango Lassi

Learn how to make a mango lassi from cookbook author Maya Kaimal in this Howcast Indian food video.


Hi, today I'm going to teach you how to make a mango lassi. Lassis are a refreshing Indian drink made with yogurt. They're a mixture of yogurt and fruit or yogurt and salt. Today we're going to make a sweet one, a sweet mango one. We're going to add two cups of plain yogurt and we're going to add half a cup of mango pulp. Now, there's different kinds of mango pulp you can find at an Indian grocery store. There's alphonso mangos and kesar mangos, just different varieties of the fruit. I prefer alphonso mango. It's got a very rich, full, lovely balanced flavor so if you can find that I highly recommend it.

I'm adding two tablespoons of sugar. You can sweeten it to taste. Actually, I'll put in a little extra. It's up to you. I like it a little bit sweet. And I'm going to add some water and this also is variable depending on what consistency you like. And we're just going to mix this up until it gets really nice and frothy.

Okay. This looks like a nice consistency and I'm going to pour it over ice so it's nice and cold. This tastes great on a hot Indian afternoon. And I'm going to garnish it with just a little sprig of mint and there is your mango lassi. Yummy.
