Love mangoes? Then you're in for a treat. Here are some more easy raw mangoes recipes just for you. 


  • 1 raw mango
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 4 green chillies
  • A pinch of crystal asafoetida

Serves: 2

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 3-5 minutes

Ready in: 30 minutes

Preparation Method:

1. Peel and roughly chop the raw mango.

2. Cook the raw mango pieces with salt, 1/2 cup water in a cooking vessel on medium heat for 3-5 minutes. 

3. While it's cooking, soak crystal asafoetida in 2 tablespoons of hot water so that it melts and dissolves completely.

4. Once the raw mango pieces are almost cooked, remove them off heat. Keep them closed for 5 minutes so that they cook through. Then let them cool down completely. 

5. Once cooled, grind them along with green chillies into a smooth paste.

6. Transfer ground raw mango into a bowl, add salt if required, crystal asafoetida melted in water, coconut oil and mix well.

7. Dilute this gojju if required to the consistency you desire by adding water. I usually keep this gojju semi-thick in consistency.

8. Serve this gojju with hot rice and enjoy.


1. You can also cook raw mangoes with their peel on. The peel will also get ground along with the cooked pieces of raw mango.

2. You can pressure cook raw mangoes too. But raw mangoes cook fast on a stove top, so you can save time by not pressure cooking them. 

3. If you are in a hurry & need this dish ready in no time, then cook it through until it's cooked & little soft. Then bring it down to room temperature under a fan & then grind.
