What is Mango Raita?

Chilled sweetened yogurt with chunks of mangoes is mango raita. Mango is everyone’s favorite. During summers a variety of mangoes are available in India. Be it the very classy alponso mango/hapus mango or the very popular badaami and many more. Being a crowd-pleaser, mango has been taken beyond fruit and now there are many uses of mango. A number of recipes are prepared using mangoes. Not only is this juicy fruit popular for its divine taste, but there are various benefits of mango too. It is loaded with nutrients, 1 cup of diced mango can fulfill our daily Vitamin C requirement. It has lots of antioxidants too. It aides the digestive system and helps in weight gain, if you are interested.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Mango Raita:

During summers yogurt recipes are so welcomed. And if it comes with the health benefits of mango, what more! Here is all that you need to make the mango raita:

Yogurt: I have received many requests for a post on how to make curd? However, I have to work on it. Definitely, I like to use homemade yogurt for all my yogurt recipes and raita recipes. It need not be too thick but certainly should be very well whisked.

Mango: For mango recipes use the best mango available. This will give you the most of the recipe. I have used dasheri mango. You can also use alphonso mango or Badami mango or kesar mango (this variety is my favorite, more than Alphonso). Other than mango chunks, you can also add little mango puree to enhance the flavor. I was in the rush and therefore skipped adding it, although I have mentioned it in the recipe.

Flavors: Mint adds a great flavor and freshness to mango raita. Black salt has been used and should be used in raita recipes and salad recipes. I like to add a little white pepper. It balances the sweetness of the raita.

How to serve Mango Raita?

It should be served chilled for lunch. I, however, made it a part of my latest lunch party which included jain chana masala, tawa paneer, ajwain poori, palak patta pakora, green chutney, tamarind dates chutney, and phirnee. Yes!

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
