Make the most out of mangoes while they are still about and try Anupama Jail's take on Kairi Chutney.

Every summer, Anupama, a homemaker fondly remembers her childhood in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh, which was spent playing with friends and relishing mangoes to her heart's content.

After moving to Pune, post marriage, she has experimented with a variety of dishes that use raw mango, be they in curries, chutneys and pickles.

Now at 74, she enjoys treating her grandchildren and guests to tasteful, traditional, seasonal recipes.

Editor's Note: For Jain parathas, skip the ginger-garlic paste. And for a Jain version of the kairi chutney, skip the onion and use a pinch of hing or asafetida.

For vegan parathas, substitute the dahi in the recipe with vegan yoghurt.
