Mango might be the the kind of the fruits but I have not seen anyone appreciate this mango more than Gujaratis. They even eat the peel of the mango as it is considered rude to waste this fruit.
Kairi No Ras is a common treat across homes in Gujarati. I had it for the first time at the in-law’s place the gujju way aka with poori 🙂 Also they take out the pulp by hand and use a hand blender to churn in.
Unlike the milky north Indian version, this one is pure mango delight i.e. no milk at all.
