I make this quick 5 minute mango raita often as it is quick and easy to make.
It does not take more than 10 minutes to whip up this lovely sweet dessert of mango raita.
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.
