This mango raita was amazing to taste. I do not know how to describe its taste. It was simply awesome. I made it as an accompaniment with Veg pulao.

This time, I decided to make mango raita instead of the regular Onion-tomato or Boondi raita or Cucumber raita. This mango raita recipe uses ripe sweet mangoes.

I have used alphonso mangoes, but one could use any variety of sweet mangoes. It was so good, that I have decided to make it often till the mango season is on in India.

I have one posted one more easy and quick 5 minutes mango raita in which tempering is not added.

This mango raita is adapted from the book ‘Indian cookery’. I have changed the raita recipe, but only in a few aspects. I added sugar to the curd. Its not essential but since I have a sweet tooth, I decided to add some sugar.

The original raita recipe calls for 1 tbsp of mustard seeds and ½ tsp fenugreek seeds. I used 1 tsp mustard seeds and ¼ tsp fenugreek seeds. Also, I have used whole red chillies. The original recipe asked to deseed the red chillies and chop them finely.

For the garnish, you could also use diced mangoes and top it in the center of the mango raita as I have done in the below photo. to get a fuller and creamier taste, it is better to use full cream curd.
