Bellam Menthikai

This is my aunt Suguna Rao’s recipe. This is a quick way of making this recipe. This does not involve drying the mango in the sun.


  1. One raw green mango (remove skin and cut into chips) - 2 cups
  2. Gud - 1/2 cup
  3. Salt - 2 tsp
  4. Mirchi Powder - 1 tsp
  5. Menthi podi - 2 pinch

Method 1

  1. Mix the cut mango with gud, salt and mirchi powder. Cover and keep aside
  2. Next day add 2 pinches of menti podi and mix really well.

The above recipe does not last long and you need to finish it up quickly. If you want to make a bigger batch and want it to last longer you need to put it out in the sun.

Method 2

  1. Mix the cut mango with gud and salt
  2. keep it out in the sun everyday till you see it oozing a syrup
  3. Add the mirchi powder and menti podi and mix well
