Mangoes have been almost universally accepted as the most delectable and gratifying of all fruits. They are also unique, because they are among just a handful of fruits that are consumed both raw and ripe, like banana, jackfruit, papaya, etc. I have presented some venerated, traditional Indian recipes for both raw and ripe mangoes. The recipes are pan Indian and do not belong to any one state. They are all easy to prepare, and with the exception of a couple of recipes, are not time - consuming. Do use good quality mangoes to get the best results. I hope you have as much fun as I did while preparing these recipes. The appreciation from friends and family who taste the dishes is always very encouraging.
