Chilled mango lassi on a hot afternoon sounds too good. Lassi is a very thick yogurt based drink with lots of cream/malai floating on top. Instead of adding thick full fat yogurt I have added very thick buttermilk and a little yogurt/curd for flavour. It will taste very good especially with mango and there is no compromise with flavour. Try other mango recipes! ... “Mango Lassi | How to make mango lassi?”
