I am yet to come across a person who doesn’t love mangoes, people across all age groups wait with bated breath on when the King of fruits will hit the markets, making it the most awaited fruit in the year.
Being a mango lover, here is my pick of must-try fresh mango-based foods in my city:
1) Fresh Mangoes with Vanilla Ice-cream
‘Simple is delicious’ – there is nothing that beats this combination – freshly chopped mangoes with vanilla icecream, absolutely yumm!!!
Where: Corner House Ice-creams across all outlets in Bangalore
2) Puri with Aamras
A typical Maharashtrian breakfast delight – puris taste even better with Aamras (flavored mango pulp with milk)
Where: Rajavardhan Foods, Jayanagar 9th block, Bangalore
Open from: 10 am to 10 pm
Locate on Google Maps
3) Raw Mango Masala with Corn
This will bring all the taste buds to life – raw mangoes + assortment of spices + sweet corn cooked in charcoal.
Don’t forgot to ask for double masala and extra lime :D
Where: VV Puram Food Street, Basavanagudi
4) Mango Milk Shake
Who says a fruit-juice cannot replace a dessert – a mango milk shake made of fresh mangoes can resurrect anyone :P
Where: Sri Ganesha Fruit Juice Center across all outlets in Bangalore
The above delights should last till June-end– time for tango with mango!!
An interesting trivia for motorcyclists is the famous true story of how Harley Davidson used mangoes to enter the motorcycle market in India in 2010.
Hail the King of Fruits!!
