Finally rain has arrived and so has the king of fruits. Our beloved Hafoos, Payri (local mango variety) are missed and craved around the year. Nothing can beat Aam ki Pyaas.
Raw mango has already arrived a month back and our moms are busy making Achars and Murabas which will be stored and used for 2, 3 months.
Every household has a traditional special dish made from mangoes which is passed through generations. This is one of those special dish which we make at least once during the mango season.
1 medium size raw mango, finely chopped
2 tomatoes chopped
3-4 small onions sliced
2 t spoon Garlic and ginger paste
4,5 green chillies
Garam masala powder
Cloves, peppers, cardamom
Chicken 750 gms
2 to 3 tspoons oil
Salt to taste
Put 3 tspoon oil in a cooker, add bayleaf, cloves, peppercorns. Add thinly sliced onions and cook it till it gets brown. Add ginger garlic paste, chilies, finely chopped tomatoes , chopped raw mango and garam masala powder. Saute it till the tomatoes and onions are well cooked and starts leaving the oil. Lastly add the chicken and salt as per your taste.
Add some water and close the lid of the cooker. Allow it to simmer for around 10 to 15 mins.
Try this dish with Parathas or Naan (Indian breads). Here in this image you can see Bidari Paratha which is a deep fried paratha.
