Recipe: Mango Lassi

Mr. Chatwani laughed incredulously when I asked him for his lassi recipe. "It is obvious. Only yogurt and sugar whirled together," he claimed. After all, no self-respecting lassi maker wants to be caught adding water and making it thinner! A good one is thick like a milkshake. Here is my recipe.

Serves 1

    • ½ cup yogurt (full-fat is preferred)
    • 1 tablespoon homogenized milk
    • a few pieces of fresh, ripe mango
    • brown sugar to taste

Blend all ingredients, and serve chilled.
