Summer is about humid, hot and sunny days, but it is also about that smell and taste of intoxicating Mango. One can eat a mango raw, ripe, grilled, baked, frozen, or just puréed, it is that versatile! The juicy flesh, the smooth outer skin, the contours of a fully ripe bulged out mango, the chilled aamras or simply cubed pieces of mango are a treat at the end of the day.
