India’s Mango Lassi Awarded The ‘Best Dairy Beverage In The World’
India has a big reason to celebrate today because Mango Lassi has just been named the ‘Best Dairy Beverage In The World’ by TasteAtlas for the year 2023-24. This is a big win for our country’s traditional drink.
Mango Lassi is a famous drink from North India, especially loved during the hot summer months. It is made with yogurt, known as dahi, and fresh mangoes.
To make it even tastier, people often add cardamom, water, and sugar. Some even put saffron in it, calling it Kesar Mango Lassi. When you blend these ingredients, you get a creamy, frothy drink that is best enjoyed cold.
People around the world are talking about how delicious Mango Lassi is. On social media, many praised it, saying things like “Lassi supremacy” and calling it “the best of the best.” There’s a special mention of the Alphonso mango version, which many think is the best.
People from different countries shared their love for Mango Lassi. For example, someone said they miss India and its tasty food and drinks.
Another person, who is not Indian but has Indian friends, always asks for Mango Lassi. Even a teacher in Brazil talked about making different lassi flavors with students, like banana and strawberry lassi.
Lassi itself is an old Indian drink. Farmers in Punjab would mix milk, sugar, and curd and keep it in clay pots. It’s great for hot weather, refreshing and hydrating.
Besides Mango Lassi, there are other kinds like sweet lassi, salted lassi, bhang lassi, and mint lassi. In the list of TasteAtlas of the top 16 Dairy Beverages in the World for 2023-24, standard Punjabi lassi is fourth, and sweet lassi is fifth.
