Mango/Aam/Mampazham Lassi

Mango_Aam_Mampazham_Lassi_1Lassi is an Indian beverage prepared with fresh curd. Mango lassi is a very popular summer beverage. Curd and mango is a delicious combo and makes the lassi rich and yummy. What we need is fresh curd, sweet ripe mango, sugar and some cream.

Here I have used Padiri mango, a variety of mango found in some parts of Tamil Nadu to prepare Mango/Aam/Mampazham Lassi. Padiri mango has nice fragrance, rich taste and attractive colour.

Ripe Mango is known as  Mampazham (மாம்பழம்) in Tamil and as Aam in Hindi.

Ingredients

  • Medium size mango (cut and fleshy parts extracted) – 2 no
  • Fresh chilled creamy curd –  1 cup
  • Sugar – quarter cup
  • Low fat fresh cream – 2 tablespoon (optional)
  • Cardamom powder – pinch (optional)
  • Chilled water – as needed
  • Salt – pinch
