The sweltering summer season warmth is already right here and the one factor that makes it bearable is the promise of mangoes. Aside from consuming them by the dozen or whipping up aamras, smoothies, and ice lotions, strive one thing completely different this yr. From the 4 corners of the nation, we have now rounded up mango recipes with a regional flavour. 

Khatta meat

Khatta or bitter meat is a speciality discovered throughout the hills in Northern India, with numerous variations from Jammu and Kashmir to Himachal Pradesh to Uttarakhand. “Rising up within the north, I’ve tried various variations of the dish. This recipe has an Ishaara twist, whereby we have now accentuated the sourness by including recent unripe mangoes along with amchur”, says Prashant Issar, co-founder of Ishaara, Mumbai.


  • 500gm mutton (ideally with a couple of shanks)
  • 60ml mustard oil
  • 150gm onions, finely chopped
  • 10gm cumin seeds
  • 2-3 cloves
  • 5-6 black peppercorns
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 inexperienced cardamoms
  • 1 black cardamom
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 5gm kasuri methi
  • 5gm turmeric
  • 10gm Kashmiri chilli powder
  • 15gm inexperienced chillies, chopped
  • 15gm ginger
  • 15gm garlic
  • 2-3 Kashmiri dry crimson chillies
  • 25gm amchur powder
  • 2-3gm fennel powder
  • 6-7 skinny slices of unripe mango (kairi), barely torched
  • Salt to style
  • Coriander leaves, for garnish


  1. Warmth mustard oil in a deep pan and add the entire spices. Add onions and sauté on low flame until onions turn into translucent. Add chopped ginger, garlic, and inexperienced chillies and proceed to sauté. Now add kasuri methi, turmeric, bay leaf, and Kashmiri chillies. Add 150ml water and simmer on gradual flame.
  2. Add the mutton and sauté on low flame. Simply if you see some caramelisation, add 200 ml of water and cook dinner on a really low flame for 45-50 minutes. Verify the meat for tenderness and add salt to style. Add amchur powder and fennel powder. Stir effectively and garnish with roughly chopped recent coriander.
