Ingredients
  

  • 300 g raw mangoes (about 30% ripened but not sweet), diced
  • 100 g white sesame seeds, dry roasted for 4-5 mins
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds, powdered
  • ¼ tsp fenugreek seeds (methi), powdered

For the tempering

  • ½ tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
