Established in the year 1932, Desai Bandhu Ambewale in Kothrud is all about mangoes. And, has been serving their mango-based dishes to three generations. Their store is very well known among Punekars for naturally ripened mangoes and products made without using artificial flavours. They're known to bring the purest Alphonso mangoes to Pune's plate. If you don't have much time on your hands for preparing everything from scratch, this shop is your one-stop destination.
You will find mango barfi, lassi, ice-cream, and their signature aamrakhand (mango shrikhand). Even if the store is known for a number of things, what everyone loves is their special amrakhand. Unlike others, Desai Bandhu includes real mango pieces in their aamrakhand. The consistency thick and the texture of it makes it look like it was whisked by hand.
They offer other mango products as well. You must try out their aamba poli, mango pulp, mango pedha, and more. Apart from mango, they also have pineapple pulp available at INR 140 a litre. The famous amrakhand is for INR 150 for half a kg. Make the most of the mango season and visit the outlet to pick your order.
