Jyoti's Tasty Tip:


Oh Wow! This is sooooo good, and the mango tastes much better than tomato. Whenever you can find mangoes in the market, you have to make this. It's going to change your perspective about cold soups. This one will surprise you. Try it before summer ends.

Remember, it's all about the taste!   Chef Jyoti
