Aam ki Launji

BM # 34   Week 2   Day 1

Mango is one of my favorite fruits, whether it is raw or ripe I simply love it.Today for the first day of this edition in week 2 I have picked a Rajasthani relish. Aam ki launji is a sweet and sour relish with wonderful flavors.This is served as a side with meals and has a shelf life of at least 4-5 days, provided it is stored in frig.

I had posted this for the Rajasthani Thali that I had prepared during one of the BM 's .Somehow I did not get a chance to post all the recipes of the Thali, any way here is the launji which you guys might have to wait for the right season .This is a relish which surely will please all.

1 cup raw mango, cubed
1tb sp ghee
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp nigella seeds
1-2 whole dry chilly
1/4 tsp red chilly powder
Pinch asafoetida
Pinch turmeric
Salt to taste
1 tb sp jaggery / sugar ( this can vary according to the quality of raw mango)
Add ghee to a pan, it should not be very hot.
Add cumin, fenugreek seeds,fennel seeds,nigella seeds and asafoetida.
Add whole red chillies.
Immediately add 1/2 cup water.
Add the mango pieces , and spices.
Let cook till the mango is nearly done.
Add jaggery.
Let it dissolve , cook for 2-3 minutes.
