India has a variety of mangoes, and just like Indian cuisine, there are diverse recipes made from local Mangoes. Most of us have a memory associated with mangoes. Be it those summer holiday outings to grandparents home, to relishing whole mangoes with cousins. For us, it’s the Bathoni. Now Bathoni derives it name from the word “Batha” which means Mango Seed in marathi. So bathoni is essentially a Mango seed curry, of course with some of the pulp too. Recipe calls for any local mangoes, but they need to be ripe and soft. Pairi,Langda,Chaunsa,Kesar are some of the varieties we have tried. Any local sweet and tart mango will work. The pulp makes for a sweet and tart gravy, that is spiced with ginger and chilies.
