How to Make Maangaa Mappaas in Coconut Milk

  • If the mango is too sour, soak in water for a few minutes, squeeze out the water and keep the mango aside. We require mildly sour mangoes.
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and whey they start to splutter, add the curry leaves.
  • Add the sliced onions and saute till they become soft.
  • Tip in the green chillies, ginger and garlic and fry for a minute or till the raw smell goes.
  • Add the coriander powder and fenugreek powder, followed by turmeric powder and saute for a minute.
  • Add the third extract of coconut milk along with mangoes and salt. Cover and cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Increase heat and pour the second extract and mix well. Let it boil.
  • Finally add the first coconut milk extract. When it just starts to boil, switch off heat.
