Summer means mangoes and who doesn’t love mangoes? Our favourite tropical fruit is the flavour of the month, being in season from April through June. There’s a wide variety of mangoes you could indulge in, from the local Suvarnarekha to Mumbai’s Alphonso mango.
Opt for something different from the regular old aamras and smoothies and have something unconventional. Blend together different ingredients with a tinge of tanginess, depending on your personal taste, keep it traditional or relish it with a continental twist.
