3. Mango Pickle
Mango pickle is the most popular way to take advantage of unripe mangoes in South Asia, specifically, in Pakistan and India. Pakistani people love to devour mango pickle with their parathas in the breakfast. Just try it if you haven’t already.
Originated from margarita, it takes the initial recipe and includes a sprinkle of mango flavor. Pick a mango juice, rather than using lime-juice. Try not to use all the lime, only a sprinkle of lime prevents the drink from being too sweet.
5. Pulpy Mango Juice
Probably one of the best drinks in the summers. Put small pieces of ripe mangoes, sugar, lemon and a few ice cubes into a blender and within few minutes, your delicious pulpy mango juice will be ready. It really helps the senses in extremely hot weather.

Mango powder is also known as “amchoor”. It is made with unripe and green mangoes and used as a special spice in different food items. Mango powder adds a delicious sour taste in foods and makes them ten times more devour-able.
8. Mango Bars
Mango bars will make you love mangoes. They are similar to the lemon bars with extra flavor of mangoes. They are covered with bread crust with a smooth mango filling and garnished with minced coconut on the top.
9. Mango Fruit leather
Mango fruit leather or “aam paparr” is vastly produced in India yet Pakistanis also love it. It is a combination of sweet and sour taste of mangoes in one recipe. Mango fruit roll-ups are made with concentrated sugar, mango pulp and then later dried under the sun. You just can’t get enough of it.
