Fajeto is a yogurt and mango based curry that is tangy, hot, sweet and simply delicious. I sometimes wonder if delicious is enough to describe this dish.

Come every mango season this one dish does not skip a Gujarati’s summer cooking menu; where ripe mangoes are pureed and simmered with yogurt and spices. 

Serve the Fajeto (Gujarati Mango Kadhi) along with Phulka'sStuffed Bhindi and Steamed Rice for a weekend lunch

If you would like to make this dish in a pure Jain Recipe, then you should omit the ginger in the recipe and the Fajeto will taste just as delicious.
