- Raw mangoes – 500 gms.
- Sugar – 250 gms.
- Salt – a pinch or according to taste.
- Red chilli powder – 1 tsp.
- Cinnamon powder or roasted and powdered cumin powder – 1 tsp.
- Raisins – 50 gms.
- Vegetable Oil – to shallow fry.
- Water – 2 glasses or until a thick consistency is formed with sugar.
Step 1-Take the raw mangoes ,wash,dry,scrape them and cut them into medium -sized pieces.
Step 2-Shallow fry these mangoes till light brown but do not deep -fry them or make them darkish browned.
Step 3-Now we will make our sugar syrup. For it we will add the required amounts of sugar and water to a heavy bottomed pan and cook it on slow heat till a syrup of one-string consistency is formed.
Step 4-Now in the same pan of sugar syrup we will add our fried mangoes,salt,red chilli powder,cinnamon or roasted cumin powder and cook it for a while. We can add some dry fruits like cashews, peanuts and raisins though I prefer only the latter.
Finally the tasty ,yummy,sweet and tangy mango pickle is ready to be eaten. It best can be had with paranthas,plain hot rotis,kachoris,samosas and the world! It tastes dynamic and is a must have with kids and people having sweet tooth.
