When Speedy said “mango-ginger”, I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive. Although I am used to combining fruits with spices (mostly, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves), I wasn’t at all sure how the mango and ginger combination would work. Amazingly, mango and ginger did go well together. Mango lassi is good; mango-ginger lassi is better.
The key is in the correct proportion. You can’t use too much ginger that will drown out the natural flavors of the yogurt and mangoes. What you really want is just a hint of ginger in the mixed drink. Enough to tease but not to overpower. »
