Mango Rasayana

This is Mango season, but in UAE its mango season through out the year. If not from India, Mangoes are imported from Pakistan, Egypt, Philippines, Sri Lanka and many other countries. So here mango lovers can enjoy different varieties 365 days. I usually prepare mango smoothies and milk shakes for my husband but recently thought of preparing something which I haven’t prepared for a while. This recipe is close to my heart because it reminds me of my childhood.
