Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi!


Even the name of it sounds Luscious right!


Lassi is actually a yoghurt-based Indian drink and is sometimes flavoured!
And yes, you've got it right, Mango Lassi is gaining more popularity than the usual, traditional, sweet Lassi, and it is my very favourite too!


Ah, I am literally having the taste of it in the back of my mouth!
Thick, Creamy, Sweet, with a Burst of Mango Flavours and a Hint of Cardamom - Can you wish for more?


The very first time I had Mango Lassi was from Dosa N Chutny and I cannot tell you enough how delicious it was. By far the best one I have ever had!
Even their dosas are the best ones I have ever savoured!


Let me also seize the opportunity to say why I made Mango Lassi yesterday!!
The thing is, on Monday - the day before making the Mango Lassi - I visited the Flacq Mall for the very first time (yeah I am pathetic, I know!!), and when my eyes caught sight of the 'Mumbai Chaat' wordings, I knew I had to have lunch there! 


N-O    Q-U-E-S-T-I-O-N-S    A-T    A-L-L!


So, I ordered 2 portions of Pani Puri's, a Mango Lassi and 1 Non-Veg Thali!
The Pani Puris were pre-made boxed ones found in Supermarkets, the Haldiram's brand if I am not mistaken! But it was good, it's store-bought right? The Mango Lassi was bland, I thought it was a Sweet Lassi and the Thali was beyond my expectation! I am not saying it was amazing-amazing, but for a foodcourt food, it was good!


Voila! That is why I had to make the Mango Lassi! To quench my Mango Lassi thirst!


Hope you enjoy it too!


PS: If you're wondering where I found mangoes at this time, well I didn't!
A shame I know, but well, frozen mangoes do the trick when you have pressing food craves!
You'll easily find them from Monoprix and Jumbo!



Thick, Creamy, Sweet with a Burst of Mango Flavours and a Hint of Cardamom, this Mango Lassi is everything you want right now!
