Recipe for Sakharamba (Sweet Raw Mango Relish with a hint of cardamom)


  1. Raw Mangoes – 3 nos. medium sized (washed, dried, peeled & grated)
  2. Cardamom powder – 1 tsp
  3. Sugar – 1 ½ cup (it depends on how much sweet you want)

Method –

  1. Take the grated mangoes & add the sugar. Mix well & keep this mixture aside for 15 – 20 mins until the sugar dissolves completely & you see enough liquid in the bowl.
  2. Now transfer the contents into a heavy kadhai & keep cooking on a very low flame else the sugar may burn.
  3. Keep cooking until the mixture turns into a jam like consistency & the sugar clings & coats the mangoes.
  4. At this stage, if you taste & feel that the sugar isn’t enough, switch off the gas, add the sugar & keep it aside until it dissolves & then repeat process of cooking.
  5. Once done, switch off the gas, add cardamom powder. Cool it completely before you transfer it in an airtight glass jar.

Notes –

  • I have used normal sugar. In case you use castor sugar, then the step 1 process is expedited (5 mins) or so if you mix well.
  • Stays good in fridge for over a month or so.
  • Enjoy with theplas, parathas, chillas etc.
