Hello, my name is Grace and I suffer from the incurable case of mango lust.
With my favorite varieties Alphonso and Badami selling very cheap at 10 dhs/kilo (US$2.7) in the supermarket just below where I work, I am on a stocking expedition daily.
I am eating one mango everyday. At least one. If overeating isn’t an issue, I say, eating 3-4 pieces is effortless. Ah, a repeat in last year’s weight gain alert!
My daughter who caught me in the kitchen with sticky hands and thick mango juice trickling at the side of my mouth asked me, “Mom, are you hungry? Is it that delicious?” because obviously, I am eating mangoes like I hadn’t eaten all day!
But can you blame me? I mean, just look at the picture!
When it’s mango season in India and Pakistan, it is also mango season in Dubai as most of our mangoes here come from those two countries!
