MASALA MANGO (Mango Talkari)

Mango season has only just begun and I am having the time of my life. In less than a month I've already made Red Mango and Curried Mango and now I am here enjoying bowls of delicious Masala Mango. This one I remember enjoying namely when my mother would make us paratha roti, curried aloo, channa and spicy curried chicken. It was a beautiful sweet, tart and spicy combination when compared to the different curry flavors. I love it as a little snack though, which is a further testament to the versatility that comes from mangoes. Here's my recipe, do enjoy. INGREDIENTS 6 medium half ripened Mangoes (when cutting up the mango you cut up the seeds as well and remove the insides of the seeds)

1/4 cup Vegetable Oil

7 tbps Anchar Masala

1 2/3 cups Brown Sugar

4 cloves Garlic crushed

2 tsp Salt

Pepper to taste METHOD ●Wash and drain chopped mangoes and set aside. ●To a large sauce pan add oil on high heat and up for a few secs before add anchar masala. ●To masala add crushed garlic and hot pepper and stir for several seconds before adding mangoes and mixing quickly. ●Add enough water to saucepan till just almost covering mangoes, add sugar and salt and mix. Cover and allow to simmer for 20 mins. ●Uncover and taste, if the mangoes are still a bit tart gradually add some more sugar. ●At this point the liquid should be thicker and of it should have been somewhat reduced. Allow to simmer for further 10-15 mins until at least half of the liquid has been reduced or less and the skin of the mango is falling off the bone to touch. ●Remove from heat and serve hot or cold.
