BM #91 Week 1 Day 1 - 

This week I have chosen to highlight some mini meal ideas presented in a typical thali-style.

The above thali is our comfort food at its best. There is Palak Dal, Chayote Squash in Milk (recipe to be posted soon), Mamidikaya Menthi Baddhalu, Rice and Yogurt.

Mamidikaya = Raw mango, Menthi = fenugreek powder, Baddhalu = pieces. So this is an instant pickle made with raw mango and spices which include fenugreek powder.

My sister, Jaya, has been trying to convince me that this version of raw mango pickle is a must have. But somehow, my taste buds were used to the typical taste of Mamidikaya Mukkala Pachadi and refused another to take over. But after her 'lecture' on keeping an open mind and her success with this instant pickle, I decided to give it one chance. 

I am ever so glad I gave in to my sister's words. We are converts now. I hope Jaya doesn't say 'I told you so' :).

Recipe Source - Jaya

Ingredients - 

Mamidikaya / Raw Mango 1
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Salt 1 tsp (or to taste)
Seasoning (Oil 2 Tbsp, Mustard seeds 1.5 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Methi seeds a pinch, Asafotida 2 pinches, Red Chili Powder 1 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and dry the raw mango.

Finely chop the mango and transfer into a ceramic (or any non-reactive metal). 

Sprinkle salt and turmeric to the finely chopped mango.

Scrape out the soft pulp closer to the pith and set aside. 

In a heated pan, add oil and prepare the seasoning.

After the urad dal is golden brown and the mustard seeds have crackled, remove from heat and allow the seasoning to cool down a little.

In a blender, add the soft mango pulp set aside earlier and also the cooled down seasoning. Blend the ingredients to a smooth mixture.

Transfer the mixture to the bowl with the finely chopped mango. 

Mix well and set aside for at least an hour for the flavors to  blend in.  

Serve with rice and ghee as part of a meal.


Preparation Time 15 minutes + waiting time 1 hour
