How To Make The Perfect Mango Lassi
During a scorching, 100-plus-degree summer in India, few drinks are more appealing than iced mango lassi.
Originally from Punjab, Lassi, pronounced LUSS-EE, not LAAA-SEE, is now common across India, typically available in two varieties, sweet and salty. The sweet mango variety is our favourite and it's so easy to make; just follow these simple instruction below.
1 ripe mango
5 ice cubes
Pinch of ground cardamon
Splash of milk or water (optional)
1/2 tsp soft light brown sugar (optional)
Squeeze of lime juice (optional)
To make, add all the above to a blender and blend until you reach your desired consistency, adding and subtracting ingredients to taste.
