- Saffron - 2 to 3 threads
- Cream - few drops, to drizzle
- In a blender add the diced mango cubes, sugar, cardamom powder and blend until it is thoroughly mashed.
- Dump in the yogurt and give it a whip , just to combine.
- Add the cream and fold in using a spatula.
- Pour the mango lassi on to the serving glass and top with roasted nuts of ur choice , garnish with saffron and drizzle of cream on top.

- Folding some cream in the lassi makes it more rich and yummy instead of just putting as topping.
