Mango is a fruit of the mango tree having round or oval kidney-like shape. The fruit takes 4-5 months from flowering to ripen. It has a smooth, fibrous and pulpy texture. In Indian cooking, unripe mangoes are generally sliced and dried to form a powder which is called amchoor.
Choose mango which is firm and not soggy. It should be bright yellow or green in color.
Eating excess mangoes can lead to a gain in weight and increase blood sugar levels. It may cause irritation in the throat and may cause allergic reactions.(2)
