  3. Hi Indira, I love mangoes so this recipe is a definite try. Thanks for sharing with us :)

    Indira, do you by any chance know what do they call Kaasi aaku (Kaasaaku - Kaasi leaves) in English?

  5. This is a staple here during the season. Some of the mangoes are so sweet, I don’t add sugar. Milkshakes and lassis ensure my daughter gets some calcium as she doesn’t really like milk!

  7. It’s not yet summer here, but the craving for summer delights has already started:)
    Thanks Anjali.

    Deepa: I agree, cold lassi is a Godsend on a hot summer afternoon.

    Shalu: Kaasi aaku? I don’t recall any such name. Do you have a photo or recipe with it? That would helps to identify easily.

    Nirmala: Few more days of wait then it would be mango heaven for you.:)

    Aparna: Yes, good for children and adults who doesn’t like milk based drinks.

    Hello Edamame: Thanks for your support.

  8. I love that Lassi, and the addition of cardamom is a favorite, and that name, is perfect for it.

  11. On hot days like these, a lullaby is perfect for breakfast, drink a large glass of this and go right back to sleep :) I love the pale golden shade of the drink :)

  14. Hi Indira,
    Great recipe for the hot summer months to come. We live near Phily and the weather has been very dull here. I have never really seen such ripe mangoes around….never found them in Indian stores. Where do u think I should look for them?

    Comment by Jaya — May 16, 2008 @ 3:05 pm

  15. Hi Indira,

    Perfect ratio and made it today as it is quite sunny. Hmm…came out very creamy and minus sugar or syrup!!! Enjoyed its natural taste.

    We all slurped it with full joy, very nice recipe. Thanks..

  16. Hi Indira,

  17. Indira, do you by any chance know what do they call Kaasi aaku (Kaasaaku - Kaasi leaves) in English?

    Shalu - If you are talking about those green leaves/plants with the little green berries that turn purple when they are ripe…I think they are called Mora leaves..they are available here in Atlanta in the local farmers market… i will note the correct name again and post here.

    Cheers,
    Kiran

  19. Hi Indira,
    I just wanted to say that this is the prettiest yellow hue of mango lassi. I had another recipe for it that was paler (uses more yogurt), but I loved yours so much that I will keep it. Thank you.
    (And thank you for the great idea of cooking radishes, too. I like them a lot fresh in a salad, but never thought about cooking them ).
