Mango Lassi

I’ve told you that we have been falling in love with Indian food lately. Sometimes I cannot get enough of it. Maybe it’s that smoothness of the curry sauces, of the simplicity of the ingredients, or heck all of the spices that just make for a wonderful meal. I can tell you that my freezer is pretty much loaded with garlic naan right now as well, and my closet is full of a variety of dal. Yes, we are true fans.

There is however a wide variety of desserts and drinks that the Indian culture bring to the table, and one of those are lassi. Think of lassi as the Indian smoothie. The basic version is really yogurt, water, and spices, however there are also savory types, and sweet types of lassi. I’m a fan of the sweet type, and hence the mango lassi. This mango lassi is not only delicious, but it is super refreshing on a hot afternoon.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
