Indian mango recipes cover dishes like mango chutney, instant and sweet mango pickles and mango rice. The mango or the aam season usually starts from March and ends in July.

Some raw mango varities are sweet or slightly sour and some other are sour to very sour. For instance, totapuri, is usually sweet; the mulgoa is very sour.

One of the Indian mango recipes is the mango rice recipe. It typically uses the mulgoa.

Mango pickles are a very common Indian side dish. Many years ago, come summer, it was common to make such pickles in large quantities to last for a year. The pickles were stored in special utensils called jaadis, which are made from ceramic.

Today, however, not many make pickles in large quantities. Thanks to the modern life styles.

Another reason why many do not make pickles to savor them over a long period is because of the health concerns. Pickles are high in salt content.

Because they make an excellent side dish for items like curd rice, relishing pickles in moderation would be the way to take.

Totapuri mangoes, which are a key part of some Indian mango recipes, are long and have an oval shape.

It is quite common to relish raw totapuri mangoes. Here is how to savor such a mango:

Wash and wipe dry with a clean cloth

Cut the mango vertically into thin pieces in such a way the pieces do not separate at the end,

Sprinkle salt-and-chili powder mixture inside of the pieces, all around, and churn the pieces gently, with both hands, to ensure the mixture spreads evenly.

Break a piece and relish!
