Aam-er Tak (Mango Sour)

Ingredients:(Serves 4)

  • Mango (Peeled & deseeded) 1 no.
  • Cooking oil 1 tbsp.
  • Mustard seeds ¼ tsp.
  • Water 4 cups
  • Salt ¼ tsp.
  • Sugar 2 tbsp. for each cup of water


Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and let it splitter. Add the mango, stir a little, and then add the water. Add salt, and let it boil. When half done, add sugar. Cook till the mango is done. Refrigerate and serve.

Nanz's Tips:
  • To beat the heat, the consistency of the syrup is kept very thin. During cooler seasons, you can make the consistency thicker by adding less water than mentioned above.
  • In case mango is not available, you may prepare the same with pineapple too. In that case, take half of a medium sized pineapple. Thinly slice it before adding to the cooking pan. You need to add more sugar (3 tbsp. per cup of water), in case you use pineapple.
