Mango Mania

After coming to USA, we always talk about our Des (India). Everybody has a long list of things they miss about India. Our family, friends, festivals, food and Mangoes. Yes mangoes, the national fruit of India, the food of GOD. Everybody has so many fond memories associated with mangoes. Mango is a part of our rich culture. We use mango leaves for making torans with marigold flowers which are used to decorate the archways on festivals and even use it for Satyanarayan pooja with kalash.

We all love mango a lot and love mango in all its forms. Remember those days of eating sour, unripe mangoes with salt and chilli. There are so many popular dishes made with unripe mangoes which is known as kairi. In summer heat nothing is more soothing than the cooling summer drink called panna or panha. Different types of pickles, chutneys, methi-amba, chunda, moramba, aampapadi, ambapoli, etc. So many yummy dishes.  And to top it all, its the amaras, thick pulp/juice of mangoes . Every mango season I keep dreaming about eating aamras-puri.  OMG, really missing mangoes a lot.

Two Ripe Mangoes

Chopped Walnuts / Pistachios /  any other nuts you like

One Can of Mango Pulp

How to Make:
Remove the mango skin and cut them into small pieces.  Keep few big slices separately to decorate the sundae. Put one big scoop of ice cream into the bowl. Put one layer of mangoes. Put one more scoop of ice cream. Top it with 2-3 tablespoons of mango pulp and chopped nuts. Decorate it 2-3 slices of mangoes.

Note: Mango pulp is easily available in Indian grocery Stores. I prefer Ratna Alphonso Pulp. But there are a lot of other varieties available. You can also add a dollop of whipped cream on the sundae. Alden's organic Ice cream is available In Whole Foods Market.

Mango Panha

This is the third recipe in our Mango Mania Series. Kairicha panha is a refreshing raw mango drink for hot summer afternoons.

- Ice Cubes while serving


How to Make:

Remove the raw mango skin and cut them into big pieces.  Remove the big seed. Boil the pieces in the water until they become very soft. Keep the remaining water to use in the panha. I prefer to boil them in the pressure cooker. Let it cool. Make a puee of the boiled mango in the blender (approx 1 cup). Add cardamom powder, sugar, salt and saffron. blend until it becomes smooth. Add 1 cup of water in the blender and mix it well. Pour the puree intl the pitcher. Add the remaining water and stir it well. Serve it chilled.

Mango Crepe

I love to go to this place that serves crepes. The idea of making a mango crepe took shape as we were discussing mango mania. My kids loved this creation, hope yours will enjoy it too. This is our fifth recipe in the Mango Mania Series.


For Mango filling
- 1 mango peeled and diced
- 3/4 cup mango pulp
- 3-4 tsp sugar
For crepe
- 3/4 cup pancake mix (substitute it with Maida or flour and 1/4 tsp baking powder)
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp oil
- 3/4 cup milk

- Ghee or butter


How To Make:

In a pan heat the diced mango, mango pulp and sugar. Stir the mixture continuously until it thickens. Set it aside.

Beat the egg, milk and oil. Add the pancake mix. Heat griddle on medium heat and use ghee or butter to grease. Pour about 1/4 cup batter and spread it on the griddle to make thin crepe (dosas or thin pancakes). Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes or until the bottom is lightly browned. Turn it over and cook for about 30 seconds. Remove it and give the crepe a cut using the spatula all the way to the center. Spread about 1 tbsp of the filling on the crepe and fold it over.

Makes about 6 crepes.
