Deep Kesar Mango Pulp (puree)
This is the sweet, golden pulp derived from mangoes. The pulp is extracted from "kesar" mangoes, a sugary variety native to North India. It is great by itself, or warmed and poured on ice cream. It also makes a great ice cream shake when added to vanilla ice cream. It is often used in sweets and yogurt drinks.
