Mamidikaya/Mango Charu

This is another recipe which I love. Easy to do and yummy to taste. I believe a modified version of this called "aam ka panna" is very famous in Maharastra. So lets see this charu recipe:

Raw Mango (taste it to check if it is sour)
Green chillies
Curry leaves
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds
Cumin seeds

Method of preparation
1)Peel the mango skin and chop it into small pieces. Add little water to mango pieces and put it on stove. (mango pieecs should be drowned in water. Do not add too much water at this point. We can add more water while making charu.)
2) After it is done try to mash the pieces with hand or masher until it is kind of soft water. If you want you can filter the water.
3) Take a kadai and add oil to it. Add mustard seeds and let it splutter after the oil is heated. Add jeera (cumin seeds) to it.
4) Add asafoetida to it now and also green chillies at this point. Now add the mango mixture and water to it.
5) Add salt to it and boil it for 5 minutes. 

This charu goes well with plain dal or any dal of your choice with rice.
