What it Tastes Like:
Our favorite thing about the mango lassi is that even though it doesn’t taste extremely exotic, it does have a striking flavor that’s all its own, and it is a bit of a rarity on local menus. At Gem of India, this thick and creamy dessert drink really hits the spot after a run through the buffet or a meal of spicy curries. It has just enough cool sweetness to offset anything you’ve eaten that was packed with spice. And it’s a perfectly indulgent dessert. It’s made with mango pulp and rich yogurt, which makes it an explosion of fruity flavor with plenty of tangy yogurt zip. It’s like a smoothie, with a little extra sophistication and a distinctive fruity flavor that you can’t find just anywhere.
