Mango curry with rice
Chilled Mango Kulfi
The ripe mango curry is a authentic Tamil cuisine called the mampaza puli milagai kulambu in Tamil. First time tried it and it’s a great hit.
1 Ripe Mango
1cup Shallots/ red onions
lemon size Tamarind in 1cup water
1 cup chopped tomato / puree
½ teaspoon Turmeric
2 tsp chilli powder/ 4 green chillies
For Roasting and Grinding
½ tsp Fenugreek seeds
½ tsp Cumin
1tsp raw rice
1tsp Chana dal (Bengal gram dal)
1tsp Mustard seeds
½ tsp Fenugreek seeds
Roast the ingredients in a pan till slight brown, without adding oil. Grind and keep aside.
In a deep bottomed pan add 3tbsp oil and tamper with mustard, fenugreek and curry leaves. To this add onions and sauté well. Now add tamarind water, turmeric, Salt, chillipowder or green chillies. Depends on how spicy you want it to be.
After a boil on medium heat add tomato puree and bring to boil. At last add mango pieces and bring to boil for 1 minute. Add the ground powder, mix well and serve hot with rice.
1cup evaporated milk or full cream milk
1cup ripe mango
½-1 cup Sugar
1tsp green cardamom powder
1/4 cup milk powder
2 tsp pistachios and almonds crushed
In a thick bottomed pan add full cream milk or evaporated milk and bring to boil in medium. If its full cream milk it has to boil for about 20-25 minutes. For evaporated milk, once it gets heated milk powder and sugar is added and stirred well so that no lumps are formed.
Stir till the mixture reaches a custard consistency. To this add cardamom powder. Remove from the flame and let it cool.
After the mix has cooled add mango pieces and just blend in the blender for not more then 2-3 seconds so as the mango gets mixed well. Also add crushed pistachios and almonds.
Pour this mixture in any kind of molds you want. I used simple ice try to get beautiful squares. Let them get set in the freezer for about 5-6 hours. Garnish them with almond slices and pistachios. Serve chilled.
oops!! I forgot to garnish!!!!
