Kesar is a variety of mango like the alphonsa mangoes. It is widely grown in north of india. The pulp is extracted from the mangoes and got the natural sweetness. 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.
Best lightly roasted before use, imparting a nutty aroma and crunchy texture to dishes. In India the seeds are usually ground, to thicken and flavour sauces. Tastes good in sweet pastries, breads and is ideal for garnishing vegetables.
