Honestly, a mango yogurt lassi is one of the few things that will help my attitude during this crazy Indian heat. Did I mention that it's 94 degrees in my living room? I don't even want to know how hot it is in the kitchen....
The summer heat does help me appreciate the basic things in life. Like the shade of a tree. The slightest movement of air is bliss, and a shower is pretty close to paradise for me.
And then there are sweet juicy mangoes. Combine that with yogurt and a few other things. You've got an instant bad attitude buster!
