Mango - The quintessential Indian summer fruit that we relish ripe or raw in our Summer special dishes.. Since, the seasonal fruit will soon be off the market with the onset of Monsoon, let us make use with what we have at hand.
These beauties will bid good bye to us soon, only to come back again next year. Let us make some Mango Truffles that can be made with Mango pulp which you can store for months when frozen. These delicious truffles are perfect for all the Mango lovers like me, who just can't get enough of the delicious fruit.
Let's get cooking...!
