Keri Ki Launjee

I love mangoes both raw and ripe mangoes so when I picked up the book of Marwari Vegetarian cooking by Sanjeev Kapoor I jumped with joy. Valli announced Mango Mania  as a theme. Finally, all my pictures will have a draft. This is a cause for celebration!!

Since, I had Marwari neighbours as a kid, this was an opportunity to re- explore old tastes, revive old memories. The process was started by Vaishali I plan to continue…
This Keri ki Launjee is made using unripe mangoes which are good to beat the dessert heat.  This preserve, a sweet pickle can be preserved for a long time.
