Mango Daliya ( with a wicked hint of Chilis )

Day 4 of the daliya challenge. I am feeling great and the bloating has also reduced after I substituted the cracked wheat dishes for rice and dal. The 30 mins brisk walking/cycling/climbing stairs is also helping me feeling active and energetic.

After the savory dishes I wanted something a bit sweet.  Hence this really simple daliya pudding with mango and just a hint of chili. Read on for the recipe -

Preparation Time - 20 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1/3 cup daliya
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp finely chopped ripe mango
  • 3-4 tbsp ripe mango chunks 
  • 1/2 of a red chili
  • mint for garnishing

Preparation  - Dry roast the daliya or cracked wheat till it gives off a sweet smell.

Slit and deseed the red chili. Chop it up into very fine pieces.

Cooking - Cook the daliya with 1 1/4 cup water in a pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles. Keep aside till steam escapes.

Pour 1/2 cup milk into the same pressure cooker and put it back on the flame. Let it simmer for 3-4 mins.

Transfer it to a mixing bowl. Add the honey, chopped red chili and the finely chopped mango. Mix.

Pour into the serving dish. Garnish with mango chunks and mint.

Serve immediately or chill for 10 mins before serving.

Amrakhand ( Mango Flavored Shrikhand )

It is the mango season and hence it is little wonder that the luscious fruit is making inroads into very possible dish that comes out of the kitchen. Mango rasam, mango rice, mango chicken curry, mango lassi, mango milkshake and even mango ice cream are some popular choices. So, it is hardly surprising when this wonder fruit became a part of Shrikhand, a yummy but easy to prepare dessert.

This is a very simple recipe and one can easily substitute sugar with sugarfree powder without compromising on the taste. Read on -

Preparation Time - 10 mins ( plus 2-3 hours extra if not using greek/thick yogurt )

Ingredients -

  • 1 cup thick yogurt ( or 2 cups thin yogurt )
  • 1/2 cup grated ripe mango 
  • 2 tsp powdered sugar
  • a spinch of saffron
  • 3 tbsp roasted chiroli nuts

Preparation - If using thin curd, take it in a cheesecloth or muslin cloth. Gather into a bundle and hang in a cool place for 2-3 hours.

Take the thick curd in a mixing bowl. Add the powdered sugar and beat it to break any lumps. After 4-5 mins it will turn lighter and fluffier. At this point, add the mango pulp and mix in . 

Sprinkle the saffron and pop into the refrigerator for 1 hour atleast.

Whisk again before serving. Garnish with roasted chiroli nuts and serve chilled.

Aam ki Launji ( A North Indian cousin of the delectable Amba Khatta )

Though I was aware of the comparison of the delectable Mango Launji with finger-licking odia delicacy Amba Khatta, it took a bunch of North Indian friends to point out the striking similarity between the two. The difference lies mainly in the spices used. The Launji is made with a kalonji and saunf seasoning whereas the odia version opts for the 'pancha-phutana' or paanch-phoran along with a generous dose of curry leaves and roasted cumin chili powder. I guess it boils down to the strong coriander flavor in the former whereas the latter has a distinctive note of cumin in it.

( These differences are only general and different folks may use a variation of the above mentioned seasoning. )

Read on for the recipe ( adapted from Tarla Dalal's cookbook ) -

Preparation Time - 15 mins

Ingredients -

  • 2 raw mangoes 
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds 
  • 1/4 tsp nigella seeds
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp kashmiri chilli powder ( as I prefer the red color. One can also use the normal variant )
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar (jaggery will also do and I would prefer it )
  • 3 tsp oil
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Peel and cut the mangoes into thin slices along the length.

Cooking - Heat oil in a pan. Add fennel and nigella seeds followed by the mango slices after 1 minute.

Stir for about 5 mins or till mangoes turn mushy. Then add coriander powder, chili powder, turmeric, salt and 1 - 1 1/2 cups of water. Boil for 6-7 mins till it becomes thick.

Add the jaggery and stir to dissolve it completely. Switch off flame. Remove and keep aside.

Allow it to cool down completely. It can be served on the same day or kept in a airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.

Mango Sasav (Ambe che Sasav)

Another one of Tarla Dalal's recipes. Hats off to the greatest Indian Chef who ever walked this planet. Her collection of recipes are truly amazing and diverse. She seems to have covered the entire span of the subcontinent while researching for her books and picked out some true gems.

Today I will be sharing this simple Konkani recipe that has green mangoes, coconut and toasted mustard seeds. While it is mostly made with tender green mangoes, I could not find the same and hence used cubed green mangoes. Quite a magical combination. Goes best with plain white rice. Read on for the easy recipe -

Preparation Time - 15 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 cup freshly grated coconut
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp tamarind pulp ( optional )
  • 7-8 peppercorns
  • 2 cups green mangoes ( cubed )
  • 2 tsp jaggery
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Dry toast the mustard seeds in a pan till they start to pop. Keep aside to cool down.

Take the mustard seeds with grated coconut, tamarind pulp, turmeric, chilli powder and peppercorns in a blender jar. Add 1/2 cup water and make into a smooth paste.

Transfer the paste to a thick bottomed pan/wok and bring to a boil.

Add the mangoes along with jaggery and salt. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Note - I have used dark colored jaggery powder in the recipe which turned the dish brown. But traditionally it is a yellow colored dish. BTW planning to try this with ripe mangoes next time.

Mango Lassi ( 2nd Version )

This yummy mango lassi does more than just beat the summer heat. The medley of flavors unleash a state of utopia that remains throughout the day. I find it the best way to end a rather frugal lunch consisting of rotis, dry subzi and some salad. The rose syrup and rose essence used in this recipe are the underdogs who steal the limelight without one even realizing it.

Read on for the recipe -

Preparation Time - 5-6 mins

Ingredients -

1 cup diced ripe mango
1 cup fresh yogurt
3/4 cup chilled water ( or as per desired consistency )
a pinch of cardamom
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp condensed milk
1/2 tsp rose water

For the garnish -

1 tsp subza(basil) seeds
2 tbsp rose syrup
1 tbsp water

Preparation - Soak the subza seeds with rose syrup and water in a small bowl. Leave aside for 2 hours.

Take the mango cubes, sugar, condensed milk and 1/4 cup water in a blender jar. Buzz for a few seconds till the ingredients come together. Add the yogurt, remaining water, rose water and cardamom powder. Buzz for a few seconds more. The mango lassi is now ready.

Put some soaked basil seeds at the bottom of the glass. Gently pour the lassi into the glass and finally add some more soaked basil seeds on the top.

Serve immediately.
