Mango lassi with saffron and cardamom

Mango lassi with saffron and cardamom is a delicious refreshing yoghurt creation that is very popular in India and Nepal.


Some time ago I made a mango-coconut cream, and someone asked me whether I could also give a recipe for mango lassi. A very good idea, and just as the malai kofta, it is one of the first things I enjoy when I go to Kathmandu. Normally this is the season for me to be there with my friends from Solukhumbu trekking. So here is the recipe for my mango lassi with saffron and cardamom.


  • 1 mango (ready to eat)
  • a few saffron threads
  • 3 cardamonies
  • 150 grams of natural yoghurt
  • 50 ml milk
  • Agavejuice to sweeten (you may also use honey or something similar)


  • Dissolve the saffron in a sone lukewarm water.
  • Peel the cardamons, and grind the inner parts of it.
  • Peel the mango.
  • Put everything in the blender and mix well.
