I have posted before the traditional mango rice.This mango rice has a different
flavour,and is prepared with fine cubed raw mango.
Dwelling on the health benefits of this sour treat is,that it helps in weight loss,builds up
energy,prevents sunstroke ,treats blood disorders (rich in vitaminC),constipation ,liver
disordersand many more.Diabetics can take it with yoghurt to control sugar levels.
Constipation can be treated with raw mango with salt,pepper and honey.It is also a body
Coolant,and a good summer treat.Moving on to the recipe now..
