First Comes Like / Mango Lassi

Catfishing, fake dating, ridiculous inheritance clauses…this cute romance from Alisha Rai’s Modern Love series really threw everything in yet somehow it was still engaging and relatable. Jia Ahmed is a beauty influencer who connects with Bollywood star Dev Dixit online, or so she thinks. After reading a slew of regency romances, the modern setting was refreshing. It even includes a few references to Covid which was a little surprising.

I decided to make a Mango Lassi to go along with this book. The light and refreshing drink was the perfect companion to this fun and charming read.

Mango Lassi


  • 1.5 cup frozen mango cubes 
  • 1 cup plain yogurt 
  • ½ cup milk 
  • 4 tsp sugar, adjusted to taste
  • 1 pinch Cardamom
  • Saffron to garnish, optional


Put mango, yogurt, milk, sugar and cardamom into a blender and blend until smooth.

Adjust the consistency to your taste by adding water or blend in some ice cubes.

Pour mango lassi in serving glasses. Keep it chilled before serving. Garnish with saffron if desired.
