  7. Really very interesting recipe Will try it

  8. Very interesting recipe .other than mangoes which fruits can I try ?

  9. @AnonymousYou can use strawberries, banana, apples, papaya, blueberry or any thing as you wish

  10. @Shafee Nazrinu cannot make, because they are super fine a normal blender cannot make things that fine. But if you want to try, powder 1 cup sugar with 1 tblspn cornflour. Then sieve that. it is icing sugar
