Yes! this sounds crazy but this is what i came up with. At last weeks dinner party I made custard and added mangoes to it. The next day I was finishing up the remaining mango custard( which was just mostly the custard as all the mangoes were drained and gobbled) and I thought of this recipe. I am going to try this one today and serve it for our friend who is going to have dinner with us. But, before I try doing anything I wanted to find out what "lassi" meant. The important ingredient in the Lassi is yogurt/curd apart from salt/sugar and spices. With that knowledge I shall write up my recipe and will promise to report if I did anything different from the recipe I posted.

Cutting BoardTin Opener
KnifeHeavy bottomed Saucepan
Measuring cups and spoonsBowl
Mango Puree - 1 tinMangoes fresh - 1
Yogurt plain - 1/2 cupSalt - one pinch
Custard Powder - 5 tbspMilk - 2 cups (USED 3 CUPS FOR CUSTARD AND 1 cup AFTER THAT)
Sugar = 2 tbspWater - 1/4Th cup
Note: I had to increase the milk quantity because I had to fill my Jug.
2. Mix the custard powder with 1/4Th cup water and keep aside.
3. Blend yogurt and mango puree and set it aside.
4. When the milk boils add the custard mix and keep stirring till the liquid starts to thicken.
5. Add sugar turn off flame and allow to cool completely. ( DID NOT ADD ANY SUGAR)
6. Mix the two liquids and add a pinch of salt. (FORGOT TO DO THIS ONE)
7. Peal the mango, remove skin and add it on the side of the glass as garnish.
8. Voila! let me see how this whole thing tasted after I prepared.
My Review : I liked it a lot. Perfect sugar, very filling, rich and creamy. Maybe very economical too if you have to feed a lot of people and mangoes are not in season.
