  • Peel and chop mango into 1"wide and 2" long pieces.

  • Pieces are done when colour changes, and pieces are still firm to touch.
  • Do not overcook or vegetable will get mushy.

  • Mix all masalas in sugar.
  • Sprinkle over mango pieces.
  • Toss gently with hands to blend.
  • Heat oil in a large heavy pan.

  • Add spiced pieces and stir very gently with spatula.
  • Allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes, till sugar has melted.
