Easy Homemade Mamidi Tandra recipe – Best Summer Delight👨🏽‍🍳

Though the work is increasing exponentially daily, I’m glad I’m able to spend time doing things I like and always want to do. After making those homemade natural ice cream popsicles last week, I tried my hand at trying Mamidi Tandra recipe at home. Those who know me personally, know that I’m not a movie buff. So have been watching some animated movies I always wanted to watch – Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar (watched all of it) and obviously FRIENDS which is like ongoing.

What is Mamidi Tandra ? 😕

Well, I had put up a story on Instagram asking people to guess what I had made. A few replies had Mimidi Tandra, and that’s how I learnt Mamidi Tandra is Aam Papad or Mango Jelly some like to call it. So this post will be about trying Mamidi Tandra at home. After all, as Maya Sarabhai would say, “Monisha darling, Mamidi Tandra bolo, yeh Aam Papad is so strikingly middle class” 😉

Mango Variety – which one do you like?

Aam or Mango is one of the most loved fruits in India and is often touted as the King of Fruits. Further, the variety of Mangoes in India is insane. As they say that the language and food changes every 500 km in India, I guess there’s a Mango variety similar. I recently came across this delicious image on social media showing the variety of Mangoes (and you guessed it right, these aren’t all, there are many that are not featured here)

Which one do you like? In case the one you like isn’t here, do mention it in the comments below 🙂 I’ve eaten the Alphonso, Kesar, Langda, Totapuri, Banganpalli. And it’s tough to choose one! Few of these have amazing colors while all of them have a distinct flavour. So which mango do we use for your Mimidi Tandra recipe? Well as they say in Hindi, “Aap aam khao, guthli mat gino !(Eat the mango, don’t count the seeds) It’s that we can use any Mango for our Mamidi Tandra recipe.

Further, with all the news of pesticides and chemicals in fruits, we need to be more vigilant about what we get. I was introduced to Hitha – a firm based out of Hyderabad dealing in organic and chemical free mangoes sourced directly from farms to your house delivered fresh. They have a wide variety of mangoes on offer from Banganpalli, Kesar, Rasalu and Suvarnarekha that are reasonably priced. Do check out their website for organic mangoes in Hyderabad and try for yourself

Relish Mamidi Tandra this Summer

I’ve been a fan of this since my childhood. I remember them buying them during my hostel days at New Era High School. Back then, used to stock them up 😛 However, with the lockdown in place, I’m trying to spend more time in the kitchen too. Maharaj after all 😉 And of course, Mom did help me with this one. Maa to Maa hai an?
