4 cups natural unsweetened yoghurt
1 cup diced mango
1/4 cup honey
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1 vanilla bean*
The Plain Lassi is a classic recipe from Northern India. Combine buttermilk (or yoghurt thinned with water) flavored with sugar. Frequently I come across recipes that call for scraping the seeds from the vanilla bean and discarding the rest. What a waste! The entire bean is filled with flavor and, in fact, the pod has more flavor than the seeds. You can cut the bean and use a portion at a time or you can use the whole bean, depending on the depth of flavor you wish. To cut open a bean, lay it flat on a cutting surface. Holding one end of the bean to the surface, carefully slice the bean open lengthwise. When you separate the bean, thousands of tiny seeds are exposed. This step shows why it is technically a seed-pod rather than a bean. Cutting the bean open before placing it in a liquid means more of the surface of the bean is exposed resulting in greater flavoring properties. You can also scrape the seeds from the pod before removing the bean if you choose.
