Fajeto Recipe - A Gujarati Mango Kadhi

Fajeto – A Gujarati Mango Kadhi – Summer Special.

We Gujaratis find ways and means to consume Mangoes in every possible way. We don’t even leave a single drop of mango pulp from the mango skins; so we wash them and use that water to make Fajeto – you can call it Mango Kadhi – enjoyed with Rice and dry yellow moong dal. Made with very basic ingredients – I think this could be another dish easily you can add to your weeks’ menu this Summer Season.


My secret

2 mangoes
1.5 tsp Besan (chickpeas flour)
1/2 curd
Cumin seeds (Jeera)
Mustard seeds (Rai ke daane)
Few fresh green kadi Patta (green curry leaves)
A small piece of ginger shredded / OR ginger dry powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (Haldi powder)
1 tsp Kashmiri Red Chili powder
Jaggery piece or little sugar
Few drops of fresh lemon.


How to Make?

  • Take left 2 over mango skin and soak in water and press out all the mango pulp
    Strain the water so all roughages are removed.
  • Add 2 spoon of mango pulp (aam ras)
  • Mix well
  • Add 1.5 tsp besan (chickpeas flour).
  • Add 1/2 cup curd
  • Mix well so that there are no lumps left.
  • The mixer in which you had mango pulp; add some water there too (like I said never waste a single drop mango).
  • Add little oil in a deep pan; keep pan on slow flame.
  • Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds
  • Wait for them to crackle.
  • Add fresh green curry leaves.
  • Add little piece of ginger shredded; alternatively, you can also add dry ginger powder – gives great flavour.
  • Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder (Haldi powder).
  • Add 1 tsp Kashmiri Red Chili powder. 
  • Mix everything.
  • Add water (which we had in the mixer in which mango pulp was made) to ensure masalas don’t get burnt.
  • Add little salt.
  • Now add the mango pulp curd besan mixture
    keep stirring it – if you feel it’s thick, add little water.
  • Add a piece of jaggery (or little sugar if you don’t have jaggery) as Fajeto is sour, spicy, sweet in taste.
  • Keep cooking at medium flame else curd will get split in fajeto
    once you get a boil; fajeto is ready
  • Add a few drops of lemon (you can add raw mango pieces too) it will enhance the flavour.
  • Garnish with Kadi Patta (fresh green curry leaves).
  • Serve Fajeto with Rice and if you make yellow dry moong dal; it’s a perfect combination.
