Mango Kesari

Mango is a fleshy fruit very common in India. It is the National fruit of India. The name Mango is derived from tamil word ' Mangai' . Mango is rich in Vitamins and Folate. It is referred to as King of fruits.  In my home, we celebrate both Tamil new year and Telugu new year. It is used to prepare the pachadi for both tamil new year and telugu new year. Mango Kesari is a easy and quick sweet. It can be served as a snacks to kids or as an dessert. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Mango Kesari.
