This is a speciality from my mom's kitchen, she has had written it for me in my recipe book in Oriya....
1 Mango (washed, peeled and cut into small pieces)
Panch Phutan - 1 tea spoon
Curry leaves - hand full
Meethi powder - 1 tea spoon
Jeera powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Sugar - 1/2 cup ( add more depending on taste)
Salt to taste
2 green chilien (slit into 1/2)
Oil - 1 tea spoon
Put a little oil in a pan and let it get hot. Add the panch phutan and the curry leaves and the green chillies. Then add the cut mangoes and salt. Cover and cook until the mangoes are soft.
Move the mangoes to the side and add the sugar. Let it caramalize and then add about 1/2 cup water. Let the mangoes mix well with the sugar, add the methi powder and Jeera pwder. Taste and see if you need to add any sugar. Add extra water if you like a thinner consistency.
This tastes awesome with Pakhala or even with Aloo paratha.
