Mango Lassi

Mango lassi is one of my favorite, it goes so well with Indian food, that's another story that I can make a meal out of it  :) :) Well you can do so many variations of mango lassi....add pomegranate to add a bit of crunch, add some mango pieces or strawberries......some keveda essence. Food is like a canvas all you need is a the capability to imagine, which we are all born with . It is am amazing  how one dish with same recipe and ingredients taste so different when made by two different people, I guess that is  beacuse when we cook we add a bit of ourselves in the food we prepare. I love the deep orange color of the lassi.

The deep orange reminds me of pumkins and haloween. So what are you all planning for haloween? Am glad it is not going to rain so we can trick or treat - my little one is going to be a witch from Harry Potter !! I am told that angry birds and black swan are  the most popular costume this year for haloween....popular or not make sure you have a great time and stay safe. ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!!

You will need
Mango puree : fresh or tinned - 1 and 1/2 cup
Sweet lassi -  2 cup (Can be made from fresh homemade yogurt or  butter milk) 
cardimon powder :1/4 tsp
Pista crushed : 2 tbsp
Saffron : 2-3
sugar - 2tsp

Wip sugar cardimom powder, saffron with yogurt (homemade) so it is nice and creamy.  Keep aside. Or add sugar and saffron to buttermilk. Now sip the mango with some some more yogurt and cardamom. Mix them all together and serve chilled in a class or play around with the colors - some mouthwatering with nuts, saffron and cardimom powder.

Serve chilled with your favorite meal!!
