 Mango mastani is a chilled thick milkshake made with mango puree, milk, ice cream & nuts popular among Marathi folks. Mastani is a dessert drink which originated in pune and is a very popular one. It's a speciality of Pune.
Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
Serves: 4

For Milk Shake
Milk- 2 cups (use full fat milk)
Mangoes- 3 large Mangoes (Use a sweeter variety of Mango. I have used Alphonso)
Sugar- 2 tablespoon (adjust according to your taste)
Mango Ice Cream- 4 scoops

For Garnishing
Vanilla Ice Cream- 4 scoops
Pistachios/ Pista- 6-7
Cashews/Kaju- 6-7
Almonds/Badaam- 6-7
Mango cubes- 4 teaspoon
Tutti frutti- 3-4 teaspoon
Glazed cherries- 3-4
Sugar Sprinkles- 2 teaspoon


Let us start making this scrumptious dish by slicing all the nuts pistachios, almonds and cashews. 
keep them aside.

Next, peel and chop the cheeks of 3 large mangoes. Reserve few chopped mango cubes (approximately 4 teaspoon) aside for topping the mastani drink later.

Add the chopped mangoes along with the milk and sugar to the blender. Make sure milk and mangoes are chilled.
Blend to a smooth thick milkshake. 
Add the Mango ice cream scoops and blend it again to a smooth shake.
I have added Mango ice cream to the milk shake to make it more flavorful. However, you can give it a skip.

Taste test and if the sugar is less, then you can add more.
If the mangoes are very sweet, you can completely skip the sugar or you can add honey too. 

Pour this thick mango milkshake into the serving glasses leaving about half inch space on the top.
Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the top of the shake.
Garnish with the sliced dry fruits, tuttu frutti, chopped mangoes, sprinkles and top the garnishes with glazed cherries.
Serve it immediately otherwise ice cream will melt.
Serve it with a spoon as well as straw.
Bon appetite!!!!
