MANGO CHIA SEEDS PANCAKES
It’s summer and it’s predominated by mangoes in season. My grocer just keeps sending me messages for the new stock intake for the mango boxes they import from India. It’s gonna last for another month, so I don’t mind buying these in bulk and make the best use of it while it lasts.
Alphonso and Kesari are my favorite variety of mangoes and my kitchen is exuding the aromas of these sweet mangoes, alluring me to keep making more and more recipes with this irresistible fruit. With some of the mangoes I just purée the pulp and freeze to consume later in my shakes, desserts and other recipes. Try this very simple and delicious recipe to beat that edge of usual pancakes.
