Mango is a juicy stone fruit (drupe) belonging to the genus Mangifera, consisting of numerous tropical fruiting trees, cultivated mostly for edible fruit. It is native to South Asia, from where it has been distributed worldwide to become one of the most cultivated fruits in the tropics, also known as ‘the apple of the tropics’.
Mangoes are widely used in cuisine. Sour, unripe mangoes are used in chutneys, athanu, pickles, side dishes, or may be eaten raw with salt, chili, or soy sauce. A summer drink called aam panna comes from mangoes.
Mango pulp made into jelly or cooked with red gram dhal and green chillies may be served with cooked rice. Mango lassi is popular throughout South Asia, prepared by mixing ripe mangoes or mango pulp with buttermilk and sugar. Aamras is a popular thick juice made of mangoes with sugar or milk, and is consumed with chapatis or pooris. The pulp from ripe mangoes is also used to make jam called mangada. Mangoes are often prepared charred in Hawaii.
Mangoes are popularly used to make juices, mango nectar, and as a flavoring and major ingredient in ice cream and sorbetes, fruit bars, smoothies, raspados, aguas frescas, pies, and sweet chili sauce, or mixed with chamoy, a sweet and spicy chili paste. It is popular on a stick dipped in hot chili powder and salt. Mango with condensed milk may be used as a topping for shaved ice.
