Maavina Seekarane/Mango Relish



Mango, the fruit of the Gods they say..Dont we all love it..I havent come across a variety which I have not liked so far..Here is an authentic simple dessert which is made during festivals in any Karnataka home..I am sure, a variety of this dish must be popular in other regions of India as well.

For Mango Seekarane, you need..
2 very ripe juicy mangos (preferably sweet ones to avoid adding more sugar)
1/2 cup milk
1tsp green cardamom powder
4-5tbsps pure honey
1/4 cup fresh grated coconut
a pinch of ginger powder (optional)
chopped dates and raisins for garnish

To make
Peel mangoes and chop the pieces. If the mango is overripe, try to squeeze out the pulp and juice in a bowl. To this add honey, fresh grated coconut and cardamom powder. Now add ginger powder and mix well. Finally add milk and garnish it with chopped dates and nuts..Serve as it is or chilled.
This can also be eaten with chapatis or rotis..
