Mango Raita is a delicious curd based accompaniment that goes very well with any meals. Ripe mango and mint make this raita very special and a must make during summers when mangoes are in season. Here is how to make it.
Mangoes are in season as the Summer has already arrived.
Fresh and aromatic mangoes are my weakness and when they are in season, my fridge is always loaded with them.
I do like to eat it as a fruit or make a Mango shake out of it, but I make a lot of other recipes from it too.
One of the everyday recipes being Mango Raita.
Raita is basically whisked curd flavored with any type of flavoring and either some fruits or vegetables are then added to it.
Curd is an integral part of the meals at my home and I try to make a variety of Raitas as an accompaniment.
One of the many reasons for eating raita is that the curd is full of bacteria that is good for the digestive tract.
Moreover, it even has vitamin D and calcium. By eating raita, you not only gain vital nutrients but even enhance your health.
As mangoes are back, I regularly prepare Mango Raita at home.
Both my husband and kiddo have sort of fallen in love with it.
It is a great side dish to add to your meals, which makes them even more interesting.
I also make raita using Raw Mangoes and it tastes delicious too.
Here are some more Raita recipes, that you can serve with your everyday meals – Aloo Raita, Tomato Onion Raita, Kaddu Ka Raita, Carrot Raita, Easy Cucumber Raita, Restaurant Style Pineapple Raita, Mix Fruit Raita, Beetroot Raita, and Palak Raita.
What is Mango Raita?
Mango puree, diced mango, and fresh curd, a pinch of salt, sugar, and cumin powder and fresh mint leaves are all you need to prepare delicious raita.
It is creamy and succulent. Moreover, the sweetness of mangoes and the slight tang of curd, complement each other very well.
You could even vary the ingredients and make any variations of raita as you want.
The best part about eating Mango Mint Raita is that during summer, you feel all cool and satisfied after eating it, this raita makes your diet balanced.
It can be served as a side dish with your everyday meals.
I also like to serve it with my Stuffed Parathas, Pulavs, and Biryanis.
Trust me and serve it with a spicy biryani or Pulav, and you will love every bite of it.
Can we add more fruits to this Raita?
Yes, you can experiment and add more chopped fruits such as Banana, Strawberries, Papaya, Kiwi, etc.
