Fajeto or Gujarati Mango Kadhi is one of my favorite savoury dishes made with Mangoes. The sweetness of mangoes perfectly balanced with spice and sour of kadhi.
I love using ripe mangoes in savoury dishes and this Gujarati Mango Kadhi is my favourite one of the lot. The sweet mango balances the spice from chillies and sourness of curd perfectly.
Actually, I haven’t always liked it. While growing up, sweetness in savoury dishes wasn’t what we ate at home. I hardly ate Gujarati food apart from dhokhla and farsan. The other dishes from Gujarat were too sweet for all of us. I only started eating dishes with slight sweetness only later in life. And then it was a slow, deep love.
I started liking Gujarati, food from Karnataka and I think it all happened after I love Thai food. I appreciated the depth slight sweetness brings to the dishes. And this dish is the perfect example of that. So let’s get to the recipe now. Make it and tell me how delicious it is.
