Mango Mastani | How to Make Mango Mastani at Home


Mango Mastani

I am a very big fan of mangoes. Despite that, I have hardly shared any mango based recipes on this space.

Well, there is a reason.

Mangoes are something I really look forward to during the summer months in India. Every year, I think of ‘n’ number of mango recipes to try, but every year I end up enjoying the mango fruit as it is. Mangoes are so delicious in itself that I don’t really have the patience to make something out of it. 

This year, I finally decided to share some mango recipes here and I am making a start today.


I grew up in Assam gorging on the best Langda Mangoes. But, this variety of mangoes is not common in Pune. Here it is all about Alphonso or Haphus Mangoes – they are quite flavourful, luscious and sweet. But, still my heart longs for the Langda Aam. We do them get here for a short while, and I do not miss the opportunity to get a bagful home – I guess they are transported here all the way from Bengal.

The recipe I am sharing here today is Pune special. Soon after we had shifted to Pune some years back, I came across this drink named Mango Mastani and I thought – what a name! While there are no established facts about it but, it is said to be named after Peshwa Bajirao’s wife Mastani. I guess most of us who are into Bollywood movies know about her from the movie ‘Bajirao Mastani’.

Simply put, Mastani drink I am talking about is a very thick flavoured milkshake topped with a scoop of ice-cream, nuts, and chopped fresh fruit. Often tutti fruity or glace cherries are also used as toppings. You can get as creative as you like with the toppings. Mastani comes in many flavours – mixed fruits, pineapple, chikoo, etc. But, since mangoes are in season now I am going to share my how I make Mango Mastani at home.
