Recipe of the Day: Mango Lassi

So the big news this week was that the little-indie-flick-that-could, Slumdog Millionaire, won 8 Oscars, effectively sweeping almost every category it was nominated for. It was technically nominated for 10 awards but was only eligible for 9, cause it was nominated against each other in the Best Original Song category, and you can only have 1 winner. So, you can say it was a sweet sweep. Anyways, in honor of this Indian film outdoing every other American film this year, I present to you one of my favorite Indian foods, the mango lassi. Lassi is like the Indian version of a milkshake, but made with yogurt (and you know how much I LOVE yogurt). Some places make it really sweet, which I don't particularly enjoy, but thanks to Ms. Martha Stewart, I've discovered that it's so easy to make on your own.

I've tried this mango lassi recipe and it's pretty delish. You can alter the amount of honey you put in, so you can make it as sweet or not sweet as you want. Oh, and btw, if I've made it, that means it's like the easiest thing to make and pretty foolproof. Maybe I'll have a Slumdog DVD release party (March) and serve the lassi. Hmmm...
