We all know the mango’s back, and are already busy painting our faces yellow with the pulpy juice fruit. When you’re done draining all the mangoes from your fruit basket, head down for a leisurely meal at one of these restaurants, and enjoy it in forms that are salty, sweet, spicy and tangy.

Rajdhani

Khandani Rajdhani is taking mango season super seriously {just like us} and is celebrating with a full-fledged Aamlicious festival. Gorge on some Kairi Chana Dal Dhokla, Kairi Samosa Sabzi, Mango Kofta Pulao, Malabari Mango Kadhi and {the regional favourite} Mango Pachadi. There’s also Mango Jalebi to end with! Since the restaurant only does thalis, you’ll find two or three of these concoctions on your plate for sure.
