Hello friends, I am back with another Odiya recipe of my MIL. I have been in love with aam papad (read sada in Odia) since childhood. After my marriage, my favorite culinary queen(my MIL) opened up before me her culinary treats. I love everything she cooks, and aam sada is one such mango recipe that my MIL holds specialization in. She has been a homemaker all through her life. My Odia posts are just a way of thanking her and bringing her culinary talent before the wider world. Thank you for everyone for liking my posts. Let's come back to my MIL's aam sada recipe that I have adapted to my taste and style. Sweetened with jaggery and spiced up with black salt, black pepper, and jeera (cumin seeds), this subtly sweet 'n tangy aam papad is instant.
Ingredients for instant aam papad
2 ripe mangoes (big)
1 unripe mango (optional - I included for that tangy effect)
1/2 cup- jaggery powder (more or less depending on how sweet you want your aam papad)
Black salt- 1/4 tsp
Black pepper -1/4 tsp
Jeera(cumin seeds)-1 tbsp
ghee/oil for greasing tray
How to make instant aam papad at home with jaggery:
Cut mangoes into small pieces or you may use a chopper.
Take a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker.
Let's start with the layering:
Add chopped mango slices as the bottom layer.
Top it with jaggery powder.
Next layer is of black salt, black pepper, and jeera.
Close the cooker lid with weight (whistle) and cook for 7 mins or 12 whistles. I went for 15 whistles though, but 12 should be good too. Initially, I turned off the flame after 5 minutes -10 whistles. When I opened the pressure cooker, I felt it needed little more cooking, so closed the lid and cooked for 5 more whistles.
Release pressure and open the cooker. Mix and mash everything.
Take a greased plate. I needed two greased plates for this amount. The idea is to spread the puree thin. Use a spoon or spatula to spread mango puree evenly on the plater. Keep it under the fan for one hour. Then take it out for sun-drying. Cover the plates with a muslin or cotton cloth and let is rest in the sun for at least 2 days. After 2 days, your mango aam sada is ready to be relished.
