CASHEW MANDO/MANDIGE

14 Oct

“Cashew Mando” …..With Deepawali round the corner here i am with a traditional konkani sweet ‘Mando/Mandige’ but with a twist of using cashews in it so i named it Cashew Mando 😃…… tastes awesome with its crunch and sweetness, there is no much difference to the original Mando,tastes similar 😃but loved the flavour of cashews ❤…

Mando are thin deep fried puris ,dusted with a sweet filling then shaped to triangles…..Its very easy to make but tricky at the time of folding as you have to be quick or else it can break if left for sometime .. 

Mando was very common and popular sweet during konkani wedding, without it the sweet box would be incomplete 😃 but now a days you hardly get to taste it or see it…. Its really tasty and economical too, i love it very much 😍 ,i would always wait for the sweet boxes that we would get after having the marriage lunch and wait to open to see these yummy Mandos 😊 ❤

I was inspired to make cashew mando from Anooshri Kaikini a foodie friends post of kajukatli Mando,Thanks to her for letting me know that mando can be given twist too 😊

Homemade is Happiness ❤❤❤

Happy cooking 😊

INGREDIENTS 

• 1cup All purpose flour(Maida)

• a pinch salt

• water to knead tight dough

•oil for deep frying

For Filling

• 1 cup Thin beaten rice (phova)

• 3/4 cup sugar 

• 1/2 tsp cardamom seeds

• 1/2 cup cashewnut

•1 tsp black sesame seeds

METHOD

▪Knead a tight dough from maida salt and water and rest it for 30 min or you can use immidetly

▪Dry roast sesame seeds and add to mixing bowl

▪dry fry cashews till slightly crunch and powder it and remove to a mixing bowl where sesame seeds are kept

▪dry roast phova till it srinks (they get fried fast with heat present in kadai after roasting cashews,so need to swtichon flame) and powder this and add to mixing bowl

•Add sugar and cardamom and make powder, add this to mixing bowl and mix all well

•Now make small balls from maida dough and roll to thin puris using maida for rolling..

▪Heat oil to smoking level and keep flame on medium heat add the flattened puri and fry for 2 second flip and again fry ,here its tricky you must see puris doesn’t get fried more or less it should not be soft either ,it must be correct ,you will understand the technique while frying one or two puris as i did 😃

▪Now remove the fried puris on a absorbing paper and start spreading the sugar mixture as seen in below picture.. This has to be done quickly or else you wont be able to give it shape of Mando..

▪Follow the same processes till your puris are done ,store in an airtight container 

▪Enjoy your home made Mandos with your family and friends 😊

NOTE

They remain fresh for a week if preserved well in an airtight jar
