450g / 1lb Mango (green preferably)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Panch Phoran
2 red chillies, chopped.
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
2 tablespoons raisins
225g / 8oz sugar
½ teaspoon seasalt
700ml / 1¼ pints Water
Peel the mangoes and cut them into small cubed pieces.
Heat the oil in a non-stick pan to a medium-hot heat then add the Panch Phoran and red chillies until they pop & splutter (take care not to burn them).
Mix in the mango, ginger and raisins and cook for about a minute. Add the sugar, seasalt and water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the mix thickens.
Allow to cool and serve.
