Come Party With Me: Indian Dinner — Dessert

A lassi is a traditional Indian milk shake made with yogurt instead of milk. While many variations are savory, for my Indian-inspired dinner party, I'll be whipping up a mango lassi. There's no sugar, but honey provides a subtle sweetness to the creamy drink, while lime juice adds a refreshing tartness. For those guests who have an extreme sweet tooth, consider purchasing a couple flavored chocolate bars. Vosges Naga Exotic Candy Bar is inspired by the tribes of Northeast India. The bar is a mixture of deep milk chocolate, sweet Indian curry, and coconut. It makes a deliciously easy finish to the rich meal. To check out the mango lassi recipe,

I'm with pharm_chick on the recipe though I buy the giant cans of mango pulp from my Indian store rather than fresh mango. My masi also told me to never add ice since that ruins the consistency. As per Vogues, I love their truffles (esp the chili ones) but when I have my relatives over, I need to have Indian sweets. When I host non-Indians, I stick to chai flavored pastries.

i work at an indian restaurant and our mango lassis are delicious, but instead of using actual mangoes we use mango pulp, plain yogurt and sugar. lots of sugar.

It may be a drink, but I think that mango lassi is actually quite filling and satisfying in a dessert sort of way. I love the idea of serving it with exotic chocolate bars.

i love mango lassi, or any lassi in that matter! and when i make it, i use all the above ingredients (except sometimes i use sugar instead of honey) and i dont use lemon juice, since i think yogurt adds ehough tartness. but i do agreem i would consider this a drink rather then a dessert.

Pretty sure I just drank a mango lassi from my favorite spot downstairs. It had pineapple and tangerine as well and it would work as dessert in my book. Served in lovely tumblers with a bright garnish. Per Naga- my favorite from Vosges. Katrina Markoff is my hero.

yeah, ras malai would have been a better move for an indian dessert. i still love mango lassi though. mmmm i just had a great one the other day.

That's a drink, not dessert! Should have done ras malai or some sort of halwa or something. Easy and yummy!
