Mango lassi recipe( Easy & Best)

Mango lassi recipe – a very delicious & creamy best mango lassi recipe, easy to make at home just in 10 mins. I make this mango lassi with thick chilled curd/unflavoured yogurt, mango pulp, sugar & rose water, garnished with grated khoya and malai. Though khoya is not mandatory in garnishing. However, Kolkata’s popular streetside mango lassi shops use khoya & malai both to make it more creamy and delicious. So I followed the same & get a great result with shahi taste. Described with step by step pictures.

Mango lassi is not a recipe of a simple mango yogurt drink. Rather it is a mango-flavored lassi prepared by mixing mango pulp with a sweet Punjabi lassi. Flavored with a little rose water & garnish with a dollop of malai(cream of milk), chopped almond, pistachios, and saffron strands on its top. However, it can be described as an Indian version of mango smoothy.

Being a summer special Indian drink chilled curd & ice cubes are a must-use in this mango lassi recipe. Malai(milk cream) in garnishing makes it more creamy & delicious and keeps its Punjabi taste intact as well. Rosewater just enhances the flavor of this mango drink without spoiling the original mango flavor. However, if you don’t feel so, you may skip this step.

If you want to make a sugar-free yet delicious Mango lassi then I suggest you use honey(the original one) or simply use more sweetened mangoes. Though honey has its own flavor that may not goes with the lassi flavour.

Let’s see how to make this mango lassi recipe at home. I hope my step-by-step detailed recipe will help you do it perfectly.

Tips

  • Instead of using fresh mango pulp, you may use any kind of sweet and ripe mangoes or canned mangoes, or mango puree in it.
  • Even you may use 1/4 tsp of cardamom powder in it if you prefer the flavor. I don’t add it as I believe the essence of cardamom is not suitable for this drink.
  • If you are not searching for the thick version of this mango drink, may add 1.5 cups of chilled milk or chilled water to it. 
  • Always use the sugar quantities as per the sourness of curd and sweetness of mangoes. Sugar quantities may increase or decrease as per your taste.
