Alphonso mango is a type of seasonal mango from India, considered to be among the most superior varieties of the fruit in terms of sweetness, richness and flavour. Here we use it as topping for the delicious bar cookies, if it is difficult get a hold of fresh Alphonso in where you live, you can always opt for the canned version, just make a visit to your nearby Indian food store (such as Mustafa) and you will be spoilt with choices of Alphonso products on the shelves. In place of these particular mangoes, any sweet Thai mango would do fine!
