Aam ki khatai


This recipe you will find only in the Purvanchal region. A simple way to give your dal that extra taste during the summers when one doesn’t like consuming much of spices. I prefer having something light and healthy which gives your digestive system some ease.

Though this recipe is getting lost, with people preferring more instant stuff.

What is khatai?

Khatai means something that tastes tangy or khatta.

How is it made?

Made using raw dry mango.

Any preferred season to make them?

Yes, khatai is made during summers as the sun is at its peak and drying the raw mango gets easy and quick.

So, let’s get the recipe

Mango lassi recipe


Lassis are in high demand during summer’s. Every household tries to recreate new recipes to match the tastes buds of our loved ones. So, today it’s mango lassi for everyone. A simple and no fuss recipe to try.

Mango lassi

In my recipes I mostly try to avoid using food colour, as we already intake all these preservatives from the packed food.

Lassi is a traditional drink in India ,flavored with fruits, mint or be it salty. Lassi is an yoghurt based drink. Mango lassi is just like having milkshake.

Drinking Lassi has it’s own benefits. If one is suffering from acidity then this is the best drink for them. Lassi is good for digestion and skin.

Lassi is made with curd, add water to the curd and whisk is, dilute it and Lassi is ready. Add your flavor like if you want it salty or sweet.
