All you need are some sweet mangoes and some chilled yogurt. adding sugar to the raita is your choice.

I prefer a little sweet raita, so I added sugar. However addition of sugar is optional and you can skip it if you want. If the mangoes are very sweet then you can skip or reduce the quantity of sugar.

Addition of cardamom and saffron enhance the flavors of this mango raita but are completely optional. The raita taste excellent with just plain mangoes and yogurt.

If possible Use thick yogurt or homemade yogurt. I already have one more mango raita recipe which is on the blog. This one was posted a few years ago and I still make it. In this raita tempering is done and the tempering add a lot of punch and flavor to the raita. Have a look at this Mango raita recipe here.

You can serve the mango raita with roti-sabzi or with parathas like plain paratha, aloo paratha, gobi paratha, mooli paratha or with pooris.

Vegans can easily make the mango raita with a vegan yogurt substitute like cashew yogurt or coconut milk yogurt. you can also add some dry fruits of your choice to the raita. If fresh mangoes are not available then you can also use tinned mangoes.

    A question: Have you ever tried making cashew yogurt? Do we make it the same way we make the regular yogurt? Thanks a lot:)

    • i tried once making cashew yogurt with the chili crowns on top of it. we do not get any vegan starters in india. the result was a horrible smelling cashew yogurt which i had to throw away. after that i never ever tried. but i will making one with milk yogurt as the starter. its exactly the way milk yogurt is made. i will also update on the blog once i make my a few vegan yogurts.

  8. So simple but I am sure it tastes great!
