Mangai Vella Pachadi / Raw Mangoes Cooked in Spicy Jaggery Syrup

Me and Amma were cooking together yesterday. We found some raw mangoes freshly plucked from the trees backyard lying in the fridge. Amma asked me whether to cook with it or to eat it all by itself. Suddenly i remembered this recipe which i saw in a cookbook, so we decided to cook with it.

I took all the ingredients, actually it doesn't need much ingredients at all. So simple to make, but makes out mouth tickle. It was really yummy for me when i tasted the sweet, sour and spicy stuff together. To go with this, we also made some snake gourd dishes.
