BENGALURU:Have you ever thought of pairing mangoes with chicken or prawns in a chaat or for main course? Find such surprising combinations at the Mango Masti Food Festival at My Cafe, My Fortune Bengaluru.   

Chicken Spring Rolls

For beverages, there are Aam ka Panna, milkshake and smoothie. Prepared with raw mangoes and roasted cumin powder, unlike the usual aam panna, this Amma ka Panna is creamier with very little tangy flavour.

The appetisers include the Mango Spring Rolls, which are available in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. The chicken spring rolls are served with hot chilli sauce.   

Next comes the Mango Chicken Chaat. The combination of raw mangoes and chunks of chicken in the chaat is unsual. It is a well-rounded dish with the crispness of pappad, sourness of raw mango and the sweet spiciness of sweet chilli sauce.                  

For main course, there are Stuffed Chicken Breast, Appam, Prawn and Mango Skewers and Manga Kozhi Curry. The Stuffed Chicken Breast topped with Cinnamon Mango Sauce is served on a granite-like stone with veggies such as broccoli and capsicum, giving it a colourful appetising look. The cinnamon mango sauce adds a sweet flavour to the otherwise bland chicken stuffed with a few mushrooms.     

The Manga Kozhi Curry reminds of the coastal Kerala’s chicken curry. It is served with steam rice that has a generous amount of ghee and mango flavour. The curry leaves add an appetizing aroma to this specialty. The chicken curry made with raw mango had a predominant taste of the coconut milk. Served with green salad, it pairs well with the steam rice.

Then comes the dessert. The platter with Alphonso Cheesecake, Aam ki Rasmalai and Mango Lassi are served on the stone. The Alphonso Cheesecake is the best of the lot. It is fresh with a top layer of thin slices of alphonso and a base of cookies, it is a perfect end to the meal.  

Aam ki Rasmalai, topped with a few cubes of mangoes, is rich and creamy. Served in a matka, the cold mango lassi has a thick consistency and is very soothing.  

The chef Sachin Talwar says, “We are trying to cater to all kinds of audience with a mix of different cuisines such as continental and South Indian.” 

The Mango Masti Festival is on till July 31.
Approximate cost for two: Rs  1,500
