Indian food...& lassi recipe

Ok, I'm hungry.  More specifically, I'm hungry for some really great Indian food.  Since the best Indian restaurant in my area is 45 minutes away, and it's too late to drive there now, I'll just have to torture myself by looking at photos of Indian food (masochism, I guess).  What I wouldn't give for some chana masala, naan bread with mango chutney, and a mango lassi....sigh...what are you craving tonight?

Here's a recipe for mango lassi, courtesy of Simply Recipes:

Mango Lassi Recipe


  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped mango (peeled and stone removed)
  • 4 teaspoons sugar, to taste
  • A dash of ground cardamom (optional)


Put mango, yogurt, milk, sugar and cardamom into a blender and blend for 2 minutes, then pour into individual glasses, and serve. Can sprinkle with a little cardamom.
The lassi can be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

Hi Monica...there's nothing like Indian spices, is there? Right now, I'm wearing Kenzo's Jungle L'Elephant perfume, and it takes me to straight to a tropical spice market...mmmm.
