Mango Dessert Recipes: Come summers and you'd see fresh mangoes thronging the fruit markets. There is nothing more satisfying than indulging in a pulpy, soft, juicy and luscious mango and that is why the king of fruits is truly a favourite across all age groups. During the sweltering summer heat, chilled and sweet mangoes come as quite a relief. From mango salad, mango desserts to juices or ever-so-delicious aamras, mango can be used to prepare various delicacies. They aren't just a fruit to binge on, but have also been a huge part of all our summer vacation memories. I still remember how during the childhood my mother used to slice dasheri aam or how my sibling and I used to gorge on juicy chausa aam in the peak afternoon post-lunch. Mango has been a part of many such childhood memories that all of us remember and continues to be an indispensable part of our summers.
