Mambazha Morekuzambhu/Ripe Mangoes in Spicy Yoghurt Sauce

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Mangoes, Mangoes Everywhere!!! My hubby is a Mango Maniac. My FIL, BIL and everybody in his family go crazy this summer and they used to mangoes like anything. Every week when i call my FIL and MIL they used to say aboutt varieties that have arrived and gone till date. So sad we dont get all those varieties here in Dubai. So, hatever was availabe he has got about 5-10 mangoes and all are lying in my rice pot!!! So, Every morning i open the rice pot, this nice aroma of ripening mangoes spread all over my kitchen. Thought of making something Delicious with mangoes. So made this morekuzambhu for the weekend. It was yummy and not to say about my hubby's brightened face!!!!
This can be made with Okra/Brinjal/Ashgourd, But with King of the Fruits, its a real Delicacy!!!

2 Cups Chopped ripe Mangoes
2 tbsp Fresh grated Coconut
2 tsp tuvar dal
2 tsp cumin seeds/jeera
3-4 nos Green Chillies/Red Chillies
1 inch piece Ginger
2 springs Curry leaves
2 cups of Whisked Yoghurt

1 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Oil for seasoning

Soak Tuvar dal, cumin seeds/jeera in little water for 30 minutes. Then Drain the excess water and grind it with fresh coconut, ginger and curry leaves to a smooth paste.
Heat oil in pan, splutter mustard seeds, add the chopped mangoes and turmeric and saute for a minute or two.  Add the grinded paste and cook in a slow flame for 15 minutes or till the masala and mangoes cooks well. As it cooks, you can feel the nice aroma of the masala cooking.

Once the mangoes are cooked, slim down the gas flame to real low and add the whisked yoghurt.The Curry shouldnt boil!!! Keep the flame real low!!!!. Let it get cooked in a really slow flame for 10 minutes. Then take it off the flame and garnish it with fresh coriander.
