Siddiqui and his family own Noor Bagh, a mango orchard in Rataul, Baghpat district, Uttar Pradesh. A chance sighting of a Sohail Hashmi post on Facebook about a trip to this orchard had the kiddo and me excited.
While Mallika was a huge hit (it tasted a bit like Safeda, by far our favourite mango variety even though it usually occupies the bottom slot on most mango snobs list), Alphonso was a bit disappointing. The Hapoos we got were not juicy, and their flesh a bit on the firm side. They left a tangy aftertaste in our mouth. Perhaps the fault lay in the fact that we do not know how to choose Hapoos as well as we are able to pick our Safedas or Sindhris.
On Sunday, we expanded our mango-tasting repertoire to include Rataul, Makhsoos, Ubedi and few others whose names we could not quite catch. The venue for the mango party was not the orchard (it had rained the previous night) but the compound in Salma Public School, run by Siddiqui. Laid out on a table, were at least 20 varieties of mangoes in shapes, sizes and colours we had never seen, and with names that left us wanting to try them out immediately.
After lunch (poori, potatoes, pumpkin and channa), we were handed the knives and let loose on eight or nine tubs full of mangoes dunked in cold water. Kiddo and I were attracted to Makhsoos first because they were a bright yellow (read that as sweet and, therefore, inviting). Next we targeted the tiny Ratauls. The famed variety was sweet and non-fibrous, just the way we like our mangoes though the seed seemed to occupy more space in the skin than the pulp.
We finished off our orange mango punch with some fresh orange slices! And because I used a shorter punch glass, I cut my paper straws in half to make it easier for Wes to drink. Since the orange slices take up such a large portion of the cup, we put our straw right in the middle of the orange slice. It worked great and Wes loved it!
Here is another fruit smoothie to keep you on track for your new year's resolutions! This version is loaded with fruit and pours a beautiful pink from the addition of the dragonfruit puree. The mango, banana, pineapple, & coconut additions keep this beer smooth and sweet while the dragon fruit contributes a tartness and a slight earthy character on the back end of the sip. Just the color of the beer alone will get your taste buds partying!
Everything had an amazing flavor. I'm upset that I did not take pictures!!! It was so good. Definitely have the mango with sticky rice. The staff is amazing. Thank you. We are looking forward to eating here again.

From the first mango party held at Ranga Shankara, apart from exchanging and eating mangoes, discussions of the varieties of mango, poems and stories on the fruit and competitions of dishes using mango are part of the festival.
This year, there will be a storytelling competition on mango for children between the ages of five and six. Children should send their entries in video format. Ranga Shankara will pick the two and stream them at the mango party. There is a mango recipe competition that is open to all. Participants should mail their recipes email@example.com . The best recipes will be selected and prepared by Anju Sudarshan at Ranga Shankara Café and the videos will be streamed at the mango party.
Mango party es un perfume ideal para estas fechas de calor, me llego un decant y lo termine de tanto que me gusto, tuve que hacerme con el frasco, es un mango cremoso algo herbal aromático con un excelente desempeño, como todos los perfumes de Cristian Barrera, es un crack
Great neighborhood shop with lots of options to fuel your healthy cravings!! Ordered the tropical mango mango smoothie and was worried the coconut flakes would be super noticeable but they blended it so smooth! Tuna sandwich was delicious, I opted out of jalapeños and added sprouts & it was so delicious!!!
