I made this recipe over the weekend and was quite pleased with it. I did, however, make some adjustments based on the previous reviewers' comments. First off, I started with frying the cumin, methi and mustard seeds first. I doubled the amount of those seeds (which might be too much for the average person, but wasn't too much for me), and then after frying them, I combined them with the turmeric, chili powder, green chillies and a little water, just enough to make it process smoothly in the food processor. Then I sauted the curry leaves in a little oil until aromatic, then added the mango cubes for a few minutes. Then I added the processed spice paste, and a little more water and simmered it for awhile. From there, I basically added a bit of water and cream (which I used instead of yogurt) at a time until the sauce was the consistency I wanted. One final note: I was unable to include the mango seeds in the recipe, because no matter how hard I tried, I could not split open the mango cores. The fruit I bought was pretty ripe, but still, the cores wouldn't open, either with a chef's knife or a serrated knife.
Awesome......oh it smelled so good while it was still boiling... will be a regular indeed...i will go get mangoes just to make this :) thank u so much for posting...
