How to make Mango Lassi | Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi, a creamy & delicious cold drink made from mango and curd/yogurt. As Mangoes are started to arrive in abundance here, i make this delicious Mango Lassi often at home. It's so tasty & very refreshing and also helps to quench your thirst during summer.
Lassi is nothing but sweetened yougurt/curd flavored with cardamom or saffron and it's quite popular in North India where people used to have this on every meal. Now a days, mango lassi is quite popular across the world than the plain lassi. Here in US, every indian restaurant menu contains Mango Lassi under Drinks section.Most restaurant use kesar mango pulp for the lassi and i too tried with mango pulp when mangoes are not in season.
Here in the recipe, i have used cardamom and saffron for flavoring and both the flavoring are really goes well with mango. But you can make the mango lassi without any additional flavoring, just mango,yogurt/curd and any sweetener.

Notes:
  • Use fresh curd for better taste.
  • You can skip cardamom too and make it as complete mango flavor.
  • Depends on how thick or thin you want, adjust the quantity of curd.
  • Based on mango sweetness, adjust the sugar quantity.
  • Refrigerate mango lassi and serve chilled.
  • Instead of sugar, you can use honey or any of your favorite sweetener.
  • I have used pistachio for garnishing.
