Channa Masala and Frozen Mango Lassis

Standard

When I told Chris we were having mango lassis with dinner, he thought I was describing a sauce that accompanies the main dish.  Little did he know that these sweet, creamy drinks would be the best part of our meal.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s cardamom on top, not dirt.  Jenna‘s recipe PERFECTLY recreates the lassi flavor, and the use of frozen mango results in cold, creamy perfection.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The intended main attraction was tasty too!  Tomatoes, garlic, caramelized onions, and a myriad of spices made the chickpeas pop.

We served the channa masala over brown rice and sipped our frozen lassis to counter the spicy heat.  This meal felt special, but it was both easy and cheap!


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Never underestimate humble beginnings.
