Monthly Mingle # 23 : Mango Mania

It's summer and it's time for mango!


In Kuwait, these exotic fruits arrive from India and Phillipine. And they are quite pricey! :( *ohhh how I miss mango season in my homecountry! Inexpensive and abundant throughout the season*

Mango is one of the tastes of my childhood. They have a unique flavor, meltingly sweet, soft and exoticly perfumed. Simply eat the ripe ones. Or if they are included in the recipe, I try to keep them as simple as possible to showcase their fragrant.
