You see, the thing about mangoes is that they don’t just fill your tummy but also your heart. I’ve never come across one person that’s not felt highly content after eating this god-made fruit. This is probably why mangoes are so cherished and the fact that they’re around for just a couple of months really teaches a valuable lesson about life—cherish every moment and don’t take anything for granted, you never know when a good thing might come to an end. Coming back to my point, there obviously isn’t just one way to enjoy this delicious fruit. There are so many things you can make out of it. So, like me, if you too are a diehard mango lover, you must try these recipes out. Go!

3. Aamrakhand

You will need: Hung curd (quantity as per your liking), fresh mango pulp, sugar as much as hung curd and dry fruits as per your liking.

1. The first step is to drain the curd of any water (whey) to form hung curd. Take a large bowl of curd, put it onto a thin muslin cloth, tie it tight and leave it overnight in the fridge.
