There’s a reason the mango is called the King of Fruits in India. The fruit of the tropical tree Mangifera indica, it’s a major part of our diet. From jams and pickles to desserts and even everyday dishes, the mango has pride of place in everything. So what can you make with the sweet juicy mango? Here are a few mango recipes from our kitchen.
