Ingredients:
Mangoes (Preferred: Wild Mangoes / Kaadu Mavina Hannu)
Salt to taste

Recipe:

Wash the mangoes, remove the skin from each mango, put the skin and mango fruits in separate bowls as shown in the picture below.


Add little amount of water to the bowl containing mango skin and mash them well. Squeeze it properly and put the water into the vessel containing mango fruits. Mash them well and remove the seeds. Add required amount of salt and mix them well. Put this in a mixer for about a minute to get rid of lumps.

Put one plastic sheet over the tray and spread one clean cotton cloth or plastic sheet as shown in the picture below.


Spread the prepared mango pulp over the cotton cloth/plastic sheet as shown in the picture below. Sun dry this for a day, next day repeat the same steps as mentioned above, spread another layer of mango pulp over the cotton cloth and sun dry. Repeat this for next 8-10 days.

Sun dry the sheet for about 5-6 days until its dried properly as shown in the picture below.

Remove the sheet from the cotton cloth/plastic sheet. Place it upside down and sun dry this for about 2-3 days.

Cut them into long pieces. Roll it over and place them in an airtight container. This can be preserved
