Mango Lassi


Is it Wednesday already!!? I feel like I just dont have enough time nowadays! My mind is racing and I seem to be tense about something. Its probably because I am........you know what, I dont know!! I am not feeling that well, I hope I dont fall sick! I plan a lot of things for a day, but that dont seem to get done! But some days I do manage to do a bit of cooking for the blog! ;-) I always have elaborate plans for the recipes, but because I am not feeling super duper, I end up doing simple recipes. To top it off, I sprained my left wrist yesterday. Its a bit painful, I can "support" somewhat heavy stuff during lifting, but cannot "hold" even delicate things!

Anyways, I wanted to participate in the "Tried and Tasted" event started by Zlamushka of Zlamushka's Spicy Kitchen. The bloggers are to cook from Nupur's One Hot Stove this month. This is my first time at the event. But again because of the time-restrictions, I am not prepraing anything great, but decided to stick with probably the simplest of all recipes - Mango Lassi. I followed her recipe exactly (whats there to change!? Its that simple!) and here is the result. Eventhough I didnt make anything sophisticated, I am happy that I was introduced to Nupur's blog and I sure will be trying out recipes from hers soon. Do make this lassi, its one of the best coolers you could have in these sunny summer days! We gobbled it down in no time! :-)


Recipe (Serves 2) :

Canned mango puree - 1/2 cup
Plain yoghurt - 1/2 cup
Milk/ Soymilk - 1/2 cup
Cold water - 1/2 cup

Method:

Blend all the ingredients together.

Serve on ice.

Tip:
  1. Since canned mango puree is already sweetened, there is no need to add sugar. If you have to, add sugar to taste.


I am sending this to Zlamushka's "Tried and Tasted" event. Enjoy!!

It might be simple, but its delicious. I had mango yogurt for breakfast today, but it wasn't as good looking :)
