As a kid, we all used to lick every bit of the mango caked on our fingers, ate every slice kept on the platter, and sipped every drop of the shake filled in the glass.

And then we grew up, but this craze for mangoes hasn’t really changed. We still find ourselves taking three full bowls of mango juice in every wedding we attend during summers, devour every slice being served to us at some guest’s place and savour mango ice cream with family every weekend. Mangoes can be in any form, they win our hearts hands down.

As the summer approaches, oodles of mangoes start flooding the market. Every corner of the street in every town has a mango vendor selling those fresh smelling yellow pulpy mangoes. There is no other fruit that enjoys the privilege of being everybody’s favourite in summers. Served in slices, juiced in blender and frozen as ice creams, mangoes really make summers pleasant and nice.

And this is the time when you should try some lip-smacking and delectable mango delicacies. We have got you some of the recipes you can prepare at home with ease.
