Prepared by boiling raw green mangoes in sweet syrup, this is very simple yet amazing dish.
This is my contribution to Mahanandi’s JFI.
This is very similar to the Aam Panha, but for the fact that it is not actually a juice.
I couldn’t get the Bengali name for the same (Any one knows the name?). This is also a Bengali Dessert; visit any authentic Bengali Food outlet and they will serve you this tangy sweet Raw Mango Dessert. I was, at the Bhojo Hori manna at Kolkata. Till then I didn’t know that this was also a Bengali delicacy. I always thought this was only a dish born out of impatience, when you see raw mangoes hanging on the trees, and yet you long for the sweet ripe mangoes. Just add sweet Gur or Jagerry to the raw mango and eat a sweet substitute of the ripe mangoes. Well, I see that this is quite a common recipe.
The simplicity of the recipe, and I love simple recipes, attracted me to it.
2 raw mangoes cut into slices.
(Wash properly and cut with the skin)
200 grams of Gur or Jagerry.( Brown unrefined sugar)
And that’s it.
Boil two cups of water in a sauce pan.
Add the mangoes.
Add the Gur.
Shimmer till mangoes are soft and pulp start to fall of the skin.
PS: Remove the skin and mash the pulp. Then, strain the liquid to get Aam Panha
