How to Make Mango Basundi

Recipe by Naiya Sheth: Learn how to make Mango Basundi. Mango is the national fruit of India. It's the king of all fruits. They are oval and egg shaped fruits with smooth and soft skin. The color of their skin are normally in the combination of yellow, red and green. Fully ripe mangoes are bright orange from inside. Mango is nutritionally rich fruit with unique taste, flavor and fragrance. We love this fruit very much, normally we are use to make " AAM RAS" every day in summer for lunch or dinner. So here it's a home made recipe for yummy Mango Basundi for change. Basundies are very heavy in calories. So I have tried to make it little bit low cal by using corn flour, Yes it is not totally low fat because of sugar and mango pulp. In fact you can use artificial sweetener in stead of sugar.
