Ahem….. she made the mango salsa Then she made some panna cotta with mango gelee ………..And then she even made mango pickle ( which she never does even if you put her at gunpoint). She even ate some of the mangoes, raw , ripe flesh, stone et al. And then she was still left with one small mango. A raw mango that was so sour that it will make a tamarind tree cringe. What became of that mango? That mango. That lone teeny weeny fella became raw mango rice. And let me tell you, this raw mango rice is nothing but sheer delight.
