1kg Raw Mango
1½ kg Sugar
½ tbsp Cumin Seeds
1 tbsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tbsp Turmeric Powder
2½ tbsp Salt
Wash and peel the mangos, cut them into tiny cubes of about ½cm and place them in a saucepan. Add the turmeric and salt, mix well and keep for 3 hours.
Drain the mangos and leave them for 5 minutes; put them back in the saucepan. Next, add the sugar and mix it well until the sugar has combined.
Cover the saucepan with a cheesecloth and place a rubber band around it; keep it in a sunny and warm place for 6-8 days; open and stir the mangos twice a day; morning and evening, then cover and put it back.
By now, the sugar will have thickened like a sauce; add the cumin seeds and chilli powder; mix well and leave it for a day.
Transfer it into the glass jar and refrigerator.
Enjoy with Puris, Parathas and Theplas.
It will last up to a year.
In countries where the weather is too hot, it will take about 4-5 days.
