Sweet, juicy mangoes are in season and always a favorite in my family.
Mangoes are my all-time favorite fruit. In fact, whenever we go grocery shopping, mangoes are almost always purchased! I always have a variety of mangoes on hand. There are many different types of mangoes and everyone has their favorite type. My childhood was filled with fond memories eating fresh mangoes. I think I have so many memories attached to eating mangoes that I enjoy them even more.
Mangoes, of course, are enjoyed as they come as fruit. They are especially refreshing on these hot summer days. They can also be used to make a variety of salads, desserts, drinks and of course mango pickle. My older grandson is always ready to enjoy a delicious cold mango lassi. I also enjoy preparing “mango laungi (relish)” which is a quick spicy sweet and sour relish, and also my older granddaughter’s favorite! I always make this relish when I think the mangoes are not as flavorful. This relish is a perfect dish to make and it can be refrigerated for up to a week.
These are some suggestions for some of my favorite dishes using mangoes:
I have many other mango recipes on my website. Please do check them out and enjoy!
