Well, duh. But not just by itself—mix it with a healthy salad comprising of tomatoes, bell peppers and spring onions, or make a condiment of it using garlic, mint and black salt. Or better yet, mango yogurt. All you need is some yogurt, cardamom, honey and mangoes, of course! Mix them up and freeze.
While mango lassi and aamras are cool, they still don’t come anywhere close to a tangy aam panna. Mix the pulp of raw mangoes with some cumin (jeera) and black salt, and serve with ice cubes. Psst, you could also mix it with some vodka and sugar syrup—just saying!
We mean it literally. Slathering mango pulp over your face and leaving it on for 30 minutes helps get an instant glow (read more about DIY mango face treatments). To put it to further use, mix mango pulp with gram flour (besan), almonds and 1 tsp honey to remove tan easily at home.
If you can slather it on your face or your body. Mix the mango pulp with 50 gms of sugar and 3 tbsp milk to make an exfoliator for smooth skin. You could also make a facial scrub by mixing the pulp with almond powder, crushed oats and milk to get rid of dead skin.
Use it as a hair mask, to make your hair shiny, manageable and frizz-free. All you need is the pulp of a ripe mango, 1 tbsp yogurt and 2 egg yolks. Mix the ingredients into a paste and apply it on damaged hair ends for 30 minutes. You shall see the results sooner than you think.
