The Best Mango Recipes

by Jessica Lockyer-Palmer

published on 10 May 2018

There are few tastes as captivating as an aromatic, perfectly ripe mango and few flavours more synonymous with summer. Late spring signals the start of the season with the arrival of Indian Alphonso, Kedar and Badami mangoes that are then replaced in late June by the equally sweet and mouth-watering Sindrhi and Chausna varieties from Pakistan. Eating these mangoes when they are in season is an experience entirely different to the sad attempts we all make at getting our fix from a supermarket in mid-November, so seize the opportunity to eat and cook with this uniquely wondrous fruit while it is at its best with this collection of our favourite recipes.
