This one is adapted from Vij's restaurant in Vancouver. I have halved the recipe and made a few changes like decreasing the amount of ghee. It is delicious as a side dish or as an appetizer with crackers or chapati. Use Ataulfo mangoes or Hayden mangoes for the best result.
- 1 tablespoon ghee
- 1⁄2 tablespoon mustard seeds
- 20 curry leaves, chopped
- 1 cup chopped tomato, 1 large
- 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric
- 3⁄4 tablespoon cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄2 tablespoon salt
- 1 1⁄2 mangoes, peeled and cubed in 1-inch cubes
- 1 cup chopped green onion
- Heat ghee in medium pot on high for 1 minute.
- Add mustard seeds and cook until you hear the first popping noise.
- Immediately add the curry leaves. The curry leaves will shrivel as soon as you stir them in the hot oil.
- Reduce heat to medium-low.
- Add tomatoes, turmeric, cumin and salt. Stir and cook the masala for 5 minutes. Stir in the mangoes, increase the heat to medium, cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring, halfway through.
- Stir in green onions and cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes.
