Summer in India is synonymous to mangoes, and everyone across India knows this. Some of us love relishing ripe mangoes in the form of cut fruits while others make ripe mango curries and beverages with the fruit. From Mango Lassis to simple Mango Milkshakes, there are plenty of mango beverages Indians love to indulge in. But if there is one ripe mango beverage in the country which is truly iconic, it is Mango Mastani from Pune, Maharashtra.  

If you aren’t familiar with what Mango Mastani is, then here goes. Imagine the thickest of milkshakes packed with more ripe, sweet mango pulp than milk. Now picture that mango milkshake in a tall glass, topped with mango ice cream, chopped mangoes, dry fruits and maybe even some whipped cream. Sounds like all your mango dreams just came true in a single glass, right? That’s precisely what Mango Mastani is: No ordinary mango drink but a full-on mango dessert in a single glass! 

Punekar food is known for its spicy Misal Pav and Mutton Bhakri, but during summers, the city and its people unite to celebrate mangoes with Mango Mastani. Given that Mango Mastani was reportedly dedicated to Pune’s ruler Peshwa Bajirao and his wife, Mastani, the beverage’s history is interlinked with the city’s culinary tapestry. 

But where in the city of Pune can a visitor find the best Mango Mastani to relish? Slurrp caught up with Pune-based foodies to get the lowdown on the best Mango Mastani places in Pune. Here are all their recommendations. 

Sujata Mastani, Sadashiv Peth; Recommended By Jerlyn D’Silva @jerlyndsilva 

One of the oldest and most iconic Mango Mastani places in Pune is Sujata Mastani—in fact, the beverage is supposed to have been invented there. “The history of Mango Mastani dates back to the 1960s when it was first created by Mr. Abdul Kader, the founder of Sujata Mastani House,” says Jerlyn. “Inspired by traditional Indian falooda and ice cream, Mr. Kader set out to create a unique fusion that would captivate taste buds and leave a lasting impression.”  

The iconic Mango Mastani place was named after Kader’s daughter, Sujata, and Jerlyn says that Sujata Mastani is an integral part of Pune’s food culture. “Over the years, Sujata Mastani has gained a cult following and several outlets dedicated solely to serving this beloved dessert have opened up in Pune and beyond. The original Sujata Mastani House continues to draw crowds, with people patiently waiting in line to savor their favorite flavors.”
