One of the best and most refreshing things about summers are the summer fruits. With the arrival of the summers, the mango season is here and we can't stop gorging on the bright and vibrant yellow fruit in the hot summer afternoons! Mangoes don't just represent a fruit but also bring back memories of our childhood while we relished every piece during our summer vacations. And, while mangoes in all their forms and glory taste delicious on their own, they also make the perfect ingredients in many recipes.

Here are some recipes shared by By Ms Akshina Mehta,  Co-Founder & Head Baker, Moonlight Bakers & Ms Raina Mehta, Co-Founder and Head Baker, Moonlight Bakers, that you will love!
