Rose Mango Lassi
Curry Up Now
Lassi is a popular beverage in Indian cuisine. Fast-casual chain Curry Up Now adds mango puree blended with rose syrup to the traditional yogurt-based drink to balance the tartness with fruity and floral flavors. Serve the lassi ice-cold.
18 cups mango puree
9 cups plain yogurt
9 cups buttermilk
4½ cups whole milk
1½ cups rose syrup
1 cup plus 2 tbsp. light brown sugar
1. Working in batches, in high-powered blender with 8-cup capacity, combine 3 cups mango puree, 1½ cups yogurt, 1½ cups buttermilk, ¾ cup milk, ¼ cup rose syrup and 3 tablespoons light brown syrup. Cover and blend until frothy, adding additional rose syrup to taste.
2. Repeat with remaining ingredients in batches as needed.
3. Refrigerate until very cold; mixture will hold for several hours in the refrigerator. Blend again before serving if needed.
