When I was little and used to go for curries with my family I would always order a sweet lassi to drink. I loved it. However, stubborn as I was I didn't try any variation of the lassi until I learnt to make it at home. Since then I have literally tried loads of different variations and this is my favourite. Mango.
If you don't know what lassi is, it is a yoghurt based Indian drink and the basics come in sweet and salt. It is ideal to serve with curry, especially spicy ones. But it is equally as good to have as a treat when you fancy something sweet and fruity.
This is seriously easy to make and only requires four ingredients. Also I should mention I like the lassi very thick but if you like your drinks a bit lighter add more milk to it.
Right, so what you need is:
- 1 Ripe Mango;
- 2 Heaped tbsp of Icing Sugar;
- 4 heaped tbsp of Yoghurt; and
- 1/2 Pint Milk.
When I say heaped tbsp I mean:
Super heaped. Anyway, what you do to make this is throw every thing in the blender and blitz until smooth. Don't forget to peel and cut out the pip of the mango first (obvious, but you never know). Also you get to play the never ending peel game:
Yay :). Anyway (sorry feeling a bit giddy and getting distracted) here is what you will end up with, enjoy:
