Green mango Melara

This is a dish from my native and is used as a pickle. The mangoes should be sour which can compliment the sweetness in jaggery and spice in green chillies.

You can store it in an air tight container for years. I never got a chance to store it for that long since it never lasted more than 2 days. :D

Slice the pulp of mangoes into small pieces. 

Melt jaggery (add little water if required) and filter it when it is hot to get rid of the dirt.

In a pot, add melted jaggery and mangoes.

Also add green chillies and bring to boil in simmer.

Add salt and mix well.

Cook for at least 20 minutes or the mixture gets thick. Cook till the mango slices look transparent.

Remove from the flame and let the mixture cool.

Serve as a side dish/pickle with any dish.
