I have made this lassi because it brings back very happy memories of an amazing trip to Nepal many moons ago, lots of refreshing lassis to quench our thirst after climbing up hundreds of steps, we trudged up whilst the locals ran up and down in flip flops whist carrying huge sheets of plywood- we were very ashamed of our lack of stamina. My heart went out to them when we heard of the earthquake that destroyed all those tea houses that we stayed in, and all those people having to trek back up again with the plywood necessary for re-building their homes and businesses.
If you can’t find mangoes this is still delicious with the mangoes you can find in shops all year round. Ground cardamom is well worth having in stock, it brings a really great flavour to many dishes.
I hope you enjoy it!
