Mango raita

Cooking time required: 20-25 mins
Cost of preparation: 15-20 rupees

Ingredients: Large green mango ( i used one that was just begining to ripen)(1 no), red chilli (2 nos), jaggery ( to taste ), garam masala ( 2 pinches ), jeera-lanka (
cumin-chilli ) powder ( 1 pinch ), salt to taste.

Cooking: Wash and put the whole mango inside the oven. Bake at 170-180 degrees for 18-20 mins.

Remove the mango and allow it to cool down. Remove the peel and scrape the pulp into a mixing bowl. Add the jaggery ( powdered ), cumin-chilli powder, garam masala and salt.

Roast the broken dry chillis on a pan without any oil for 30-40 secs, and add to the
mixing bowl. Slightly rub it into the mango.

Serve with rice and a non-vegetarian side dish.

Note: This is an authentic Malwani preparation which i happened to watch on the telly and the mango is traditionally cooked on a wood fire. The red chillis and cumin-chilli powder are not part of the original recipe.
