Description: It might sound unusual to use mangoes in a curry but trust me it’s delicious. This is my grandma’s recipe. You can’t go wrong with it. Don’t forget to add ghee.

Course: Dinner, Main Dish
Cuisine: Indian
Difficulty: Moderate
Major Ingredients: Mango, Fruit
Cooking Method: One Pot, Simmer, Blender
Dietary Needs: Vegetarian


4 Mangoes 
2 tablespoons Ghee (Clarified Butter)
1 teaspoon whole cumin
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/4 teaspoon asafoetida powder
2 teaspoon coriander powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon red chilli powder
1 teaspoon Amchoor (Dry Mango Powder) 
1 cup water
2 cups coconut milk
2 teaspoons Lemon juice
8 – 10 curry leaves
Salt to taste


Scoop the mangoes out and blend them to get the pulp. Retain the pips and keep them aside.

Now heat ghee in a pan, splutter cumin & mustard seeds for a few seconds when the ghee is hot.

Now, add the coriander powder, amchoor powder, turmeric powder, red chilli and salt and stir-fry for a minute. Sprinkle some water droplets to avoid the spice from sticking to the base and getting burnt. Now add the mango pips. Let them coat with the spices.

After a minute pour over the mango pulp and stir for another 5 minutes.

Finally add water and cook till it thickens a little. Then add coconut milk. Let this simmer for 5 minutes.

Now take it of the heat, add lemon juice and finish it off by adding a tempering/tadka of asafoetida (hing) and curry leaves. Serve with rice or any bread you love eating.

Notes : For mangoes use any variety that’s more sweet than tart, preferable is Alphonso.  If raw mango powder is not available use more lemon juice instead.
