Langra and Kesar Mangoes From India

Indian Mangoes

It's Indian mango season again! Mustafa had the usual alphonso and banganapalli varieties, as well as dusheri and pairi. But fortunately they also had two that I haven't tried yet: langra and kesar. I wasn't getting my hopes up for langra: it was green on the outside and yellow on the inside. But it turned out to be impressively sweet like a Thai honey mango, all with just a hint of richness. The kesar, on the other hand, looked much better with its bright orange flesh inside. And it was more complex than the langra with a tinge of mustiness (in a good way). Thumbs up to both.

Side note: Raj has shut down (oh no!), although at least it was Murugan Idli Shop that has taken its place with a now much larger venue.
