Sweet Mango Rice is a delectable sweet dish from Maharashtrian cuisine. It is also known as Amba Bhaat, amba means mango and bhaat is the Marathi word for steamed rice. It is ideal to make for festive occasions.

Summer is all set to show it’s colors, the next two months it will heat, heat and more heat here. The only way is to try to beat the heat and stay hydrated. Fruits like mango and watermelon bring solace to us.

Mango, king of fruits is best eaten as it is. The fun of eating a mango messing the hands is something different and relatable to many. The love for cooking made me try this sweet mango rice and it was good. Earlier, I had made ambua,  it is a dal with mango. The mambazha pulissery from Kerala cuisine is tasty and eagerly want to make it again. Desserts like chocolate streaked mango ice cream and mango parfait are loved by all.
