Mango Mastani, Is it a drink or dessert?
Pune’s most famous Mango Mastani is a mango lover’s pure indulgent summer delight.
Mango Mastani is a rich and thick mango milkshake topped with either mango or vanilla ice cream, chopped nuts, and candied fruit. This lavish and decadent glass of Mango Mastani is Pune’s very unique innovation.
It is believed that this drink is named after Peshwa Bajirao’s beautiful lover and the second wife Queen Mastani. Mastani was an Indian warrior from the Bundela Rajput clan and was known to be an extremely beautiful and brave woman, skilled in arts, literature, and warfare.
Sujata Mastani in Pune serves one of the best Mastani drinks in Pune. Mango Mastani is one of their bestselling drinks for obvious reasons! And they make it clear in bold letters that Mastani is NOT Ice-cream.
This gorgeously cooling drink is pure bliss in the blazing Indian Summer. If you love mangoes, then you will definitely adore this beauty on a hot summer day.
It really is the best mango drink ever and can be made in under 10 minutes with just less than 4 main ingredients! Try it once and you will be in awe of the simplicity and effortlessness of making this delightful dreamy, creamy, luscious Mastani.
And even though this needs no further sprucing up, trust me the nuts and candied fruits just add to the taste and presentation.
