Mango Raita Recipe, Aam Ka Raita Recipe
I am a lover of Mangoes. I cannot describe how much love I have for these mangoes. It could be any dish with mangoes – pickle, rice, dessert, cake etc. I would not say “No”.
During my childhood days, whenever I eat mangoes even a small piece, I would get blisters all over my face. I would invite blisters every Summer. I used to have some painful days then. It would pain and itch very badly. My mom used to provide me a lot of comfort.
