Mango is the king of fruits and who will disagree with it. Mangoes are a favorite of many people. I have not found anyone who does not like mangoes.
As for me it just proved so right.
Because of Mangoes I won a competition and Got selected for a Reality TV Show “Foodshala”.
The chosen contestants were given a list of ingredients and we were supposed to make a three course meal from the list’s ingredients. I chose to make this humble dish “Mango Curry” as main course (with other few things). Judges were so impressed with the simplicity but flavor-fulness of this dish . I was on cloud nine when Chef asked me for the recipe.
I was among the top 12 contestants. All thanks to our dear MANGO.
Now,coming to our Mango Curry- Every bite is a burst of flavors in your mouth. This is a simple soulful curry. Its an awesomely amazing, tangy, spicy and sweet dish. Just thinking about this dish makes me salivate.
- Mango-3 (Choose a sweeter variety. I made this curry with Alphonso mangoes)
- Cumin seeds
- Mustard seeds- 1tsp
- Fenugreek seeds- 1tsp
- Fennel seeds- 1tsp
- Oil- 1 tbsp
- Whole Red chillies-3-4
- Asafetida- A pinch
- Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
- Red chilli powder- 1 tsp
- Coriander powder- 1 tsp
- Garam masala powder- 1 tsp
- Salt to taste
- Tamarind pulp- 1 tbsp
Peel the mangoes. Do not take out the peel with the help of a peele
Just pull out the skin, so that the rough texture is there.
In a pan put oil to heat.
Add all the seeds.
Let them crackle.
Add whole chillies.
· Add rest of the masalas.
Next add peeled Mangoes. Sauté on low heat for two minutes.
This way mangoes will absorb the flavors of all the masalas.
Now, add 2 cups of water. Cover the pan and let the mangoes cook on low heat for about half an hour.
Switch off the flame and add tamarind pulp.
Mix it well.
Enjoy this yummy sweet, sour and spicy curry with steamed rice or jeera rice or chapati, parantha or poori.
Whatever the accompaniment will be this dish will make it flavorfull.
OMG!!!!! While writing down this recipe my mouth is salivating. I think I have to make it again 😉
So I’m off to my kitchen to make this. What about you?
