Mango Lassi Recipe - Sweet Lassi

Mango Lassie - Indian mango/yogurt drink

I love mangoes and I love this mango Lassi Recipe. Mangoes are available only during summer season, I use them, raw mangoes as well as ripe mangoes in my cooking.

Raw Mango Chutney , Mango rice and Kairi Panha(raw mango drink), all made with raw mango are inseparable part of the summer cooking.

Raw mangoes with a little salt and chili powder or black pepper powder are quite yummy though they make your teeth sour.

  • Use fresh, naturally sweet curd (yogurt).
  • Adding milk makes the lassi more frothy and thick.
  • You may add water along with or instead of milk. But remember, ripe mango lassi tastes better with milk.
  • Sugar quantity will depend on the sweetness of mangoes, freshness and sweetness of the curd. And also on your sweet tooth. I usually do not add any sugar/sweetener to mango lassi.
  • You may add a scoop of ice cream while blending too. Tastes great and gives good consistency.
  • Mango lassi stays in the fridge for 1-2 days.
