Food & Wine Test Kitchen Notes
You can find kesar puree in your local Asian market or grocery store. Kesar Mangoes are prized because of their aromatic flesh, which has a sweet and tart flavor. Kesar Mango Puree is sweetened, so it perfectly balances sour yogurt.
Look for yogurt with a thin texture when buying it for a lassi. You can thin Greek-style yogurt by adding extra water when you blend it with the lime juice and mango puree.
- 2 cups plain yogurt
- 1 cup mango
- 1/4 cup water
- Two teaspoons of lime juice
- Blend yogurt, lime juice, mango, and water in a high-speed blender until creamy and smooth. If necessary, add more water or lime juice to the mixture. You want it to be creamy and thin enough to drink. Pour into two glasses and serve.
