About this recipe
Mango mastani is a delicious and creamy milkshake made with mangoes and topped with ice cream, tutti frutti, and nuts. This Indian version of a mango milkshake can easily double up as an indulgent dessert.
Indian street foods are made not just of savory snacks but also of some lip-smacking innovative desserts and this drink is one such example. These desserts are perfect after a burst of spicy-tangy flavors from chaats. It is loved by kids and adults alike.
A rich and decadent dessert drink with intense mango flavors topped with ice cream, more mangoes, and cherry is not something you want to miss this summer.
This drink was invented in Pune, Maharashtra, and named after princess "Mastani". It was first started in a small eatery called Gujjar House in Pune and is a local favorite at Sujata Mastani, a chain of hotels in Pune. Over time, it has gained huge popularity all over India and is one of the favorite summer drinks.
Mangoes: Indian mango varieties like Alphonso or kesar are used. You can use any sweet variety of mangoes like champagne/honey.
Milk: Use whole milk to make a creamy milkshake.
Ice cream: I am using vanilla ice cream; however, you can use mango ice cream if that is available.
Tutti frutti: These are tiny candied fruits and you can find them in any Indian grocery store. You can replace it with other candied fruits as per your liking.
Other ingredients: Sugar, cherries, almonds, and pistachio. I have used fresh cherries to top the milkshake. You can replace it with maraschino cherries or candied cherries.
In a blender jar, combine the ingredients for the milkshake - mangoes, whole milk, sugar, and 1½ cups of vanilla ice cream. Blend it well until it is smooth. Taste and adjust sugar.
Take 4 tall serving glasses. Pour the milkshake into the four glasses to fill ¾ of the glass. Next, add one tablespoon of chopped mangoes. Add one scoop of vanilla ice cream. Top with tutti frutti, almonds, and pistachios.
Place a cherry on the top and serve immediately.
Creamy and delicious mango mastani.
Chill the mango in the refrigerator before using it. Also, use cold milk straight from the refrigerator.
Depending on the sweetness of the mangoes, taste and adjust the sugar. I have used raw sugar here, however, plain white sugar can also be used.
Avoid using strongly flavored ice creams like chocolate or caramel ice cream for topping the milkshake.
You can top the milkshake with both mango ice cream and vanilla ice cream, or just one of them depending on your preference.
I have used fresh cherries to top the milkshake. You can replace it with maraschino cherries or candied cherries instead.
If you want to make it ahead, blend the milkshake and store it in the refrigerator for up to one day. Assemble the mastani drink before serving.
