This refreshing drink originated in India, where it is often served for
dessert after a meal of fiery hot curries. I have, of course, spiced up
a drink designed as a cool-down with the hottest chile in the world, the
'Bhut Jolokia', or ghost chile! Fruits such as pineapple, strawberries,
peaches, or pineapples may be added to or substituted for the mangoes.
2 cups plain yogurt
2 cups buttermilk (or substitute milk)
Pulp of two ripe mangoes
Juice of one lemon
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 of a fresh 'Bhut Jolokia' chile, seeds removed, minced (or
substitute 1 habanero)
Place all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Serve
in dessert glasses over ice, or freeze until slushy and then serve.
