Mango Palu or Mango rasa

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I am really sorry for not posting this recipe soon. I know mango season is getting over and we need raw mangoes for this recipe. I don't know the name for this recipe but it has a mixed taste of pickle, jam, gulumb...
Its the best with anything, roti, chapati, rice, idly, dosa, bread.....
The best part is you can make and store in the fridge for months together and enjoy the mango even when there is no mango season.
I will come directly to the recipe.
Actually there are two ways I prepare. One is you can not keep as we add onion in it.
The second one is told by my best friend Aunradha. 
I love this version and can go on nibbling again.

Mangoes - 10 to 12, (raw or half raw is fine, I used half raw, the mangoes were almost yellow)
Oil - 1/4 cup
Mustard seeds - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 2 tbsp
Methi seeds - 1 tsp
Red chilly powder - 3 to 4 tbsp (adjust according to your taste)
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Hing - 1 tsp or 
if using stoned hing, use just a pepper size.
Salt to taste
Jaggery - 1/4 cup or more(Again check with your taste)
Water - 2 cups or little more to make thick paste

  1. Wash the mangoes, wipe to dry full.
  2. Cut in to small pieces, keep it aside.
  3. Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai.
  4. When hot, add mustard seeds and allow to splutter. 
  5. Add cumin seeds, methi seeds and hing.
  6. Saute for few seconds.
  7. Add the red chilly powder, jaggery, salt and turmeric powder.
  8. Saute for a minute.
  9. Add the mangoes. Fry for 2 minutes.
  10. Add the water. Mix well.
  11. Cover and cook till the mangoes are cooked.
  12. Keep checking for the water. add if you feel its getting dry.
  13. Adjust the seasoning and cook till the oil starts leaving the sides.
  14. Cool it and store it in a glass jar or Plastic jar.
  15. It can be stored in refrigerator for months.

Keep Smiling,

Stuffed Sweets together (Rereposted)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
I don't know who is playing around! some times is G. chrome or sometimes its with the blogger. I am not able to post regularly. 
When I think about stuffed sweets, I am not getting many ideas. Still I have time to try new recipes. Hope I will come out with something different stuffed sweet :-)

Here are few stuffed sweet recipes from the archived posts for the event.

The first sweets is on healthier side as we don't fry the dumplings but cook in the water. I love this one when its hot and served with more ghee :-), Usually its prepared on Nagapanchami.

The second one is my invention and was so happy with it. I just loved the taste, even my kids loved it. Need to make it again soon. Wait for new addition in coming posts.
A Perfect sweet for winter which is prepared in North Karnataka. I love this. You can store these for a week and enjoy it.

Again another favorite sweet dish.

Sending these sweets to
 MY event which is guest hosted by Akila of  Learning-to-cook

Keep Smiling,
