Mangoes Are the "King of Fruits"

There are umpteen mango varieties. Many are sweet and very tasty when they're ripe. Though they are pleasurable to eat as is, you can make many types of mouthwatering dishes with them.

Mangoes are high in antioxidants that are beneficial for your health. They allegedly protect against cancers of the colon, breast, and prostate, and possibly against leukemia as well. They may also help lower cholesterol, improve eye sight, clear up your skin, and alkalize your whole body. They may also help with diabetes and improve libido.

This mango raita is made with ripe mangoes. You can use any variety, but the ones with thick, clear, smooth flesh and a sweet-tangy taste are the best to make this dish.

Serve mango raita with plain rice, dosa, chapati, or any type of flat bread. This is a true crowd pleaser.

Here we go for the detailed recipe.
