Beat The Monotony This Summer With These Luscious Mango Pulp Delights

by SaleBhai Team - 15-Apr-2017 - #AamBaat

Summer is here, and with it have come our favourite bright yellow beauties – mango. Don't we all desperately wait for this time of the year? Devouring those sweet, succulent mangoes or enjoying the tanginess of the raw, greener ones with a dash of black salt – is something we anticipate for months.

 

And while we relish a fresh mango, we can not help but reminisce the times when a bucketful of ripe mangoes would wait to be consumed by the children and adults of the house alike. And the look and smell of kacchi kairi remind us of the days when making pickles was an important activity in every household – a reason to sit, laugh, and make memories together – with the younger ones trying to successfully sneak out with a piece or two of the peppery bite left to dry in the sun.
