Come summers and we cannot wait to grab hold our first batch of mangoes. Juicy and delectable, mango is also called the ‘King of fruits'. Enjoyed in both raw and ripe forms, mangoes can be included in fresh fruit salads, or blended into smoothies and shakes. They taste heavenly in ice creams and compotes too. In India, we use them in a variety of desi preparations. Considering that mangoes originated in India, this does not come as a surprise to us.

Aam ki chutney is a common form of chutney that we often enjoy with rice or simply pair it with our puris. You would be surprised to know that this raw mango relish can be easily prepared at home and you need not purchase it from market each time you crave some.
