Summers, for us, scream mangoes. Touted as the king of fruits, mangoes are juicy, sweet and an absolutely divine indulgence. The market is flooded with a number of varieties like Alphonso, Dashehari, Langra, Chaunsa, Kesar, and Totapuri among others. The sweet taste of mangoes is packed with a subtle tang, which makes the entire experience worthwhile. Not to forget the health benefits they bring in. From lowering cholesterol to aiding digestion and protecting the body against heat strokes, mangoes bring a host of health benefits to the table. In Indian households, mangoes are consumed in more than one way. While some prefer relishing this fruit after their meals as a sweet treat, others tend to mix them up with milk and prepare a tall glass of shake. People also infuse this glorious fruit in various desserts and savoury dishes. And, green coriander chutney definitely takes the top spot on the list.
