  • 3 medium green mangoes
  • 5 tbsps or more according to taste sugar
  • 2 tsps rock salt
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 700 ml water


  • Boil the mangoes in a large pot of water for 15-20 minutes until their skin has burst and they have softened.
  • Remove the mangoes from the hot water and cool to room temperature.
  • Peel the cooled fruit and extract all the flesh in a bowl. Squeeze the stone to yield all the squishy pulp around it.
  • Add sugar and salt to the pulp and whizz with an immersion blender (you can also do this in a food processor), till the sugar has dissolved and you have a thick, soupy liquid.
