Mango Lassi

Temperatures are souring in certain parts of the country. Here is a perfect drink to word off that summer heat. Mango Lassi can be a finale to any Indian meal in place of dessert. This is similar to the western fruit smoothie and is a popular drink all over India during summer months.

Serves 4
• 2 cups canned sweetened *mango pulp or well ripened sweet mango pieces
• 2 cups plain yogurt

• 2 tablespoons sugar
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• 1cup crushed ice

Place all the ingredients in the blender and process until frothy.

Here I garnished the drink with red currents. 

*Canned mango pulp is available at Indian, Asian  and Mexican super markets.
This recipe has been adopted from my book, Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen.
