Kacche Aam Ki Launji

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 3 kacchi kairi or raw mangoes, diced
  • 1 tsp jeera or cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp saunf or fennel seeds
  • A pinch of hing or asafoetida
  • A pinch of haldi or turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilly powder
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 3 tbsp jaggery
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ tsp dhania or coriander powder
  • 2 tbsp grated coconut
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander or dhania or cilantro
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Hot water

Method

  • Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat.
    Add the cumin seeds, fennel seeds, garlic, ginger and saute for a few minutes.
    Add the cubes of raw mango along with salt and mix well.
    Saute for 10 to 15 minutes till the mangoes become soft.
    Add the turmeric, coriander and red chilly powder, and stir so that the masalas coat the mango well.
    Pour the hot water over the ingredients — they should be covered in water.
    Top with the jaggery, sugar, coconut and fresh coriander.
    Cover the pan with a lid and let the mixture simmer covered for 10 minutes over slow flame.
    Serve warm.
