Mango is called the King of Fruits of India for a reason.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

FOR THE GRAVY YOU NEED:

  • Coriander-mint chutney made with ginger, garlic and green chillies
  • Pulp of one ripe mango
  • Blend the two together.
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 cups fresh coconut milk or 1 tetra pack of store-bought coconut milk
  • Turmeric
  • 3 fresh basil leaves
  • 1 leaf of lemon tree if available
  • 3-4 lemon grass

Preparation:

-Saute the onions in little bit of water and when they turn translucent add the green paste with mango. Add the turmeric, basil, lemon tree leaf and lemongrass. Add a quarter cup of the coconut milk and let it simmer for a few minutes. Add the raw vegetables and stir it around a bit.

-Add in the rest of the coconut milk and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Put in the steamed vegetables and let it come to one boil.
-If you use the ready made coconut milk you will need to add water since it is much more thicker.
-Add in some salt and pepper and serve hot with brown rice.
-The mango adds a sweetness and gives it a nicer colour.
