Mangoes may very well be the king of all fruits. They fight cancer, alkalize the body, aid in weight loss, regulate diabetes, help digestion. We use mango in a various dish like in sweets, ice cream, even in cakes, then why not a savory snack. Today I am sharing a recipe “mango rava dhokla” which has very unique taste made with mango, rava or sooji and green chili.
