Mango Chundo



There was a time when I used to cook our regular meals according to the events going on the blogosphere..yeah I was a crazy blogger then:).Now of course I have sort of settled down and draft my posts accordingly and post them to match any event..yup,little tricks that blogging teaches you!!

MEC aka Microwave Easy cooking was one of the first events that I ever sent an entry to.In fact,following Srivalli’s Microwave cooking series I have prepared so many dishes which I wouldn’t have otherwise.So it was only natural that I send my entry this month,the theme fits the bill perfectly-Celebrating Bloggers.Bookmarking dishes from other blogs and trying them out is no more anything new to me..I do that all the time!!

A pale looking raw mango,peeping at me all the time from the fridge got me thinking.I had a recipe for Mango Chundo and I had been waiting to make it since long.I remembered sharing the recipe with Srivalli.A quick peep into her blog confirmed it.I went ahead and tried it..it is lipsmackingly good.Takes less than 15 minutes from start to finish.Tastes great with roti,dosa and bread..yum!!

Mango Chundo

Recipe source - Tarla Dalal


Ingredients

Raw mango grated – 1 cup [around 140 gms]-I used a medium sized mango.
Salt – 1 tsp
Haldi – ¼ tsp
Sugar – 1 ½ cups [ I used just a cup]
Chilly powder – 1 tbsp [ I used ¼ tbsp as I didn’t want it too hot]
Jeera, roasted and crushed-1 tsp

Method

In a microwave safe dish mix together grated mangoes,salt and haldi and keep aside for 3 minutes.
Mix in the sugar with 1 tbsp water and keep aside for another 3 minutes.
Microwave on high for 3 minutes- the sugar syrup should have a one thread consistency[I microwaved for about 7 minutes to get this stage]
Add the chilly powder and crushed jeera and keep aside to cool.
Store in a dry container.[I like to keep it refrigerated]

Sending this to
Jayashree for the event MEC-Celebrating Bloggers,an event originally started by Srivalli.
