* You may have to add more sugar if the mango is not fully ripe.

Method: Wash, peel and cut the mango flesh into small cubes. Heat ghee in a kadai, add raisins and cashew nuts. Fry till the nuts turn light brown in color. Add mango pieces and sugar. Cook on a low flame till sugar melts. Remove from the fire as no more heating is required.

Grind coconut and cardamom seeds with half a tumbler or 100ml of water into a very fine paste. Add 50ml of water to the paste, mix well and filter through a strainer in to a bowl. Squeeze the coconut residue left in the strainer with a spoon to extract coconut milk. Transfer the coconut milk from the bowl to the kadai and mix the contents well. Add a pinch of cinnamon powder. Mix well and refrigerate for half an hour. Serve chilled.
