3 Delightfully Different Mango Recipes for Summer

This post is also available in: hiहिन्दी (Hindi)

Mango, the most loved and anticipated tropical fruit is here again to tempt our taste buds. Right from the lip smacking aamras to refreshing salsa and savoury aam pana to creamy smoothie, the ambrosial mango in both its raw and ripe form perfectly embraces the essence of summer season. There’s no way you should miss out on devouring this seasonal fruit in either variety or taste. But if you are tired of the run of the mill recipes, then it’s time to give a contemporary uplift to the king of fruits. Here are three amazing and simple mango recipes that I picked up from an Indo- Danish friend a few years back and you should give them a try too.
