Cool your soul this summer with Mangoes
2017-05-30

We usually associate summers with a picture of the sun bearing down on us with its dry heat, trying to sap our energy and leaving us huffing and puffing. However this season also brings with it, it’s very own godsend in the form of the fabulous mango. Mangoes always brings out the inner child in us and with it a set of delicious memories that one can always relate to when it comes to summers.

 

The mango is celebrated across India in a variety of ways. The tartness of a raw green mango can be used to add a tarty punch to curries whereas the sweet and fleshy ripe mango is an unrivaled choice for preparing sweets, soulful drinks and snacks.

Here are a few delicious mango dishes from across India which we think are perfect to beat the heat this summer:

 

Amrakhand
