Step 1: 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.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: Place a cherry on the top and serve immediately.
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.
Pair this drink with lip-smacking pav bhaji for an indulgent meal.
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.
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.
