Abstract: Raw mangoes were dehydrated, powdered and mixed with other selected processed spice ingredients to obtain an instant pulihora mix (IPM). The instant mix was found to contain protein and fiber contents of 13.2 and 5.6%, respectively. The mix was a rich source of total polyphenols (636 mg/100 gm) and phosphorous (238 mg/100gm). The mix was found to be a good source of linoleic acid (6.62%). During storage, the free fatty acid and peroxide contents increased from 0.08 to 0.28% and 4.42 to 44.3 meq/kg of fat, respectively. Sorption isotherm revealed that IPM possessed non-hygroscopic nature though it contained 25% of the dehydrated raw mango powder. The critical moisture content of the mix was 12.95% which equilibrated at 65% relative humidity. Sensory analysis of the IPM reconstituted with cooked rice scored ‘good’ (7.7) even after a storage period of six months.
