Mango kozhambu

"Manga kootan" - this is how we call it in my mom's place. This is more like more kozhambu. This is how I do mango kootan. The main ingredients are as follow..

  1. Raw mango - 1/2 (chop it into cubes)
  2. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp
  5. Red chillies - 3 or 4
  6. Coconut - 2 tbsp
  7. Curd(or thick butter milk) - 1 cup
For seasoning:-
  1. oil - 1 1/2 tsp
  2. mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  3. curry leaves - 5-6 nos
  4. red chillies - 1
  5. asafoetida powder - a pinch
Take a small pan, pre heat 1/2 tsp oil and fry fenugreek seeds and red chillies, to golden brown. Turn off the stove and add coconut to it and stir it. Let it cool and grind it in to a fine paste.

Take a wide pan, put the mango pieces in it with a cup of water and add turmeric powder and salt to it and let it cook for 7 mts. The mango should be tender. Now add the coconut paste to it and let it boil for another 5 mts. When everything is mixed, turn off the stove and add the curd(or butter milk) to it and stir it thoroughly so that the mango mix with the curd thoroughly.

Take a small pan, pre heat the remaining oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add red chillies, asafoetida powder and curry leaves to it and pour it on top of the mango sambar. We can use this sambar with rice. This is a good side dish for chapathis(i like to eat it with chapathi). Try this and lemme know your comments
