Mango, saffron and cardamom Lassi

Jamie's Drinks Tube

Its brilliant to be part of Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube team and share my Indian recipes and ideas. Loving all your comments on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram as well as on my website here and always so very fab to see how many of you are cooking the dishes!

Jamie’s Drinks Tube  channel is all about refreshing ideas for warm and cold drinks and I am delighted to be sharing my recipe this week for a refreshing Mango and Saffron Lassi with a garnish of crushed pistachios. With the upcoming festival of Diwali and even Christmas later this year, this is a perfect drink to serve at dinner events and great to make in advance. Give it a go and hope you all enjoy it x

    The mango lassi looks reaaally scrumptious!
    I am going to try it because it is the start of the mango season here in Brazil.
    Thanks for the recipe. I do love Indian food and am a fan of your site.
    Best regards,

    This refreshing Lassi is lovely after a spicy Indian meal in Indian summer weather. I love the recipes you post, You manage to simplify Indian cooking, yet keep it authentic.

    Hi Maunika, I am a GREAT fan of yours and have tried many of your recipes. These ones that are videos are great, but sometimes you list the ingredients / Method and other times you don’t. I find it easier to copy the ingredients and methods by text rather than repeatedly watch the video. Is it possible to include the ingredients and method of preparation on these video recipes as well? Thanks for all that you do! Jim, from Far Rockaway, New York
