Being brought up in a tropical country where summer means nothing but scorching heat, I could only find my solace in this magnificent fruit during the hot months when I was a child. As I grew up, my love for mangoes has only taken a steep upward curve!
Bangalore is known for its cooler weather compared to other big cities, but that doesn’t stop us from loving this beautiful fruit. When I was a kid, I only savoured mangoes as a plain cut fruit, but as I explored more food blogs, I came across hundreds of ways in which you can enjoy this king of fruits.
Few years back, I made a no bake mango cheesecake which was showered with immense love from all of you. So today while I was collating all the must try mango recipes for myself, I thought why not share it with you all as a token of gratitude!

Most of the recipes that I selected today are using ripe mangoes, with only couple of them using the green or raw mango. If you are interested in more raw or green mango recipes, let me know in the comment below and I will come up with best recipes using raw mangoes.
Now let’s dive right into the recipe galore! Just note that there is no method to this madness! The recipes are all arranged randomly!
