Mangoes!

The king of fruits – mangoes are a summer seasonal fruit in India. The mango season lasts from March to May.

Although one can easily get mangoes in the market in the month of June and July and even in August. But many people avoid eating mangoes once rains start pouring because they get spoiled easily. So you have to quickly eat as many mangoes as possible in these two months time !!!

Mango is a seasonal fruit and makes an appearance once in a year during the Indian summers. Along with mangoes, fruits like jackfruit, jamun, mulberries and some more variety of Indian berries also make an appearance.

I strongly believe that one should eat according to the season. So if in season, then do have seasonal fruits or veggies in your meals.

In India mangoes are consumed both ripe and unripe. Usually ripe sweet mangoes are eaten as is or mango desserts or drinks are made with them. 

With unripe green mangoes a variety of recipes are made in the Indian cuisine. Though mango pickle is made in many homes and there are hundreds ways of making mango pickle, there are some recipes like chutney, lentils and beverages that are also made.

There are many varieties of Indian mangoes like kesar, badami, dasheri, langda, safeda, totapuri, chausa, neelam, alphonso (hapus) etc. Everyone has their own favorite variety of mango.

Our favorite is alphonso mangoes which are also called as hapus locally. They are the most juicy, delicious and also the most expensive. They mangoes are grown in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Konkan regions and mostly exported.

While making any sweet based dish or a beverage with mango, use mangoes that are not fibrous and are sweet. Avoid making drinks, desserts or sweets with half-ripe mangoes or even faintly sweet mangoes as these can cause stomach upsets.

About This Collection

In this post, I am listing mango recipes from my blog made with both sweet mangoes and tangy sour green mangoes.

There are options to choose from sweet mango desserts & sweets, to tangy drinks including some condiments like preserves, pickles and chutneys.

For the desserts, I always use fresh mangoes. If you do not have fresh sweet mangoes available in your city, then you can even use canned mango pulp. Many of the recipes mentioned in the below collection list use mango pulp.

I always blend the mangoes and make the mango pulp, but you can use store brought canned mango pulp.

Note that 1 medium-sized mango will yield about ½ to ¾ cup mango pulp. So if a recipe calls for 2 medium-sized mangoes, then substitute with 1 to 1.5 cups mango pulp.

One can make endless dishes using unripe or ripe mangoes. So take your pick and make your favorite mango recipe – be it any of the popular mango recipes like aamras, mango lassi, amrakhand, mango ice cream and mango kulfi.

I have classified this collection first into Mango Dessert and Sweets made from sweet mangoes. As you scroll below, you will see drinks, condiments made with ripe mangoes.

The last part are the recipes made with green raw mangoes that are tart and sour. You will find recipes like pickles, preserves, rice and lentils based dishes.

  4. Very nice post. I have a question. How can I pin this page in Pinterest. Sorry for asking stupid question, but m new to this.
    Any help will be appreciated

    1. jalpa. no question is stupid. we all are at different phase of learning. the first photo cannot be pinned because of some technical issues. you can hover the mouse over any other image in the post/page and click on “Pin It”. once you pin any image from a post/page then the page gets saved in your pinterest board. you can also create different boards in the pinterest to classify the pins. while pining select the appropriate board to save it. let me know if you have any other question.

  5. What a beautiful array of recipes you have here Dassana. I miss seeing, picking and eating the Alphonso mangoes and the Qalmi kind from our grandparents’ home as children.
