What kind of mangoes are best for this recipe?

Go for sweet, non-fibrous varieties of mango. For folks in India, Alphonso, or Kesar would be a good choice. If you are in the US, buy either Ataulfo, Kent, or Keitt. 

Can we use frozen mangoes?

You can but I do prefer adding freshly cut mangoes. I tried it once and unfortunately, the mango pieces weren’t sweet enough and that ruined it for me. 

How do you tell if a mango is ripe?

Ripe mangoes will smell fragrant near the stem and may have some sap oozing out. Also, when you gently squeeze the mango they should be soft.
