Fajeto is an authentic Gujarati beverage that is prepared with ripe mango pulp, yogurt and topped with an aromatic tempering.


Usually, Fajeto is prepared during the summer season and served the end of a meal to help calm down the stomach after a spicy meal in a Gujarati household. Basically, this recipe was invented to save the waste anything from the mango as mango is an expensive fruit so really you want to make sure that you don't waste any part of it.




For Gujaratis Mango is just not the fruit, it's an emotion.  We love mangoes handle it with so much care. I have numerous memories of those summer holidays which I spent in India while growing up.  When there were no mixer or blenders entered our homes in India, the older generation had their own technic to juice the mangoes. yes, most of the Gujarati families enjoy keri No ( Mango) ras ( ras translates pulp).

Fajeto is an authentic Gujarati beverage that is prepared with ripe mango pulp, yogurt and topped with an aromatic tempering.




Fajeto, made with mango pulp, nowadays you can prepare from the readymade mango pulp too, but in that old age it was made from the Mango skin and seeds which were already squeezed out then washed them in the water..added some spices, sweetener such as jaggery or sugar and yogurt, then very mild tempering added on the top. So how do I make fajeto, do I use all those mango skins and seeds in the water, no I use fresh Mango pulp which I prepare in a mixer or blender then thin it out with the water and prepare it.


Notes:-

If you can't find fresh mango, use canned mango pulp.
