Mango (yellow) (500g)
Thai Name: Mamuang Suk Narm Dokmai
Mangos are grown all over Thailand, and they are eaten everywhere, by just about everybody. Because they are grown in every region, and harvest times differ due to local climate differences, they are available all year long. They are plentiful and cheap, and extremely popular in Thailand.
Mangos are harvested when they are unripe, and are allowed to ripen off the plant. Some will be sold whilst unripe, to be eaten as a sour tasting fruit. Others will be allowed to ripen a little and then used as a cooking ingredient, whilst others will be left to ripen fully into the golden yellow fruit that most of us are familiar with.
Yellow mangos are very sweet, and extremely soft. The skin is also very soft, and extremely easy to peel off. They are full of juice, and eating one can be a messy experience.
Thai folks will almost always eat a Yellow Mango as a snack fruit, often eating the whole fruit including the skin, simply by cutting chunks off with a knife and popping them into their mouths.
There is one famous dish in Thailand which relies upon Yellow Mangos as the main ingredient. You will see small stalls in the food markets selling this dish, named Khaow Neow Mam Maung, which consists of sticky rice, slices of yellow mango, and coconut milk, mixed together to make a sweet dish.
Fruit salads in Thailand would not be complete without the inclusion of Yellow Mango, alongside other Thai exotic fruits such as guava, pineapple and banana.
Another major use for Yellow Mangos in Thailand, especially when it comes to tourists, is in making milk shakes and ice shakes, where mango makes an excellent choice of fruit, which needs no sugar or any other flavours, to make a cool and refreshing drink.
