    Mango with milk (not shake type, but close to fruit salad type, if you will)

    Warning :- Recommend only with 100% non-sour mangoes viz Hafoos and Kesar. But probably you Delhiwalas don’t know that.

    my mom eats mango-with-milk (like what nishitd has said – totally nonsour mangoes – bangalore’s Badami mangoes are also good for this – as are aphoos and kesar) with chapati (note that this is layered oil-chapati and not phulka). supposed to be a fantastic combo (most of my extended family swears by it) while i’m indifferent.

  3. Then of course there is that bit about how Mangoes are not cigarettes

    Oh, come on! Mango lassi, I agree, is fairly disgusting, but I looove Mango Milkshake. I’ve spend the last 3-4 months in Singapore, where each mango costs around $2-3, and where I don’t possess a mixie [yet] which will allow me to make my Mango Milkshake, so the milkshake is one of the first things I asked for when I reached home a couple of days ago. That, and plain lassi. And musammi juice, fresh. Mmmm..

    But I do not like the concept of Mango served with icecream, just as I don’t like strawberry sundaes. Fruits and ice cream are not meant to be mixed! 🙂
