Bittergourd-Mango Curry In Coconut Milk
Posted by Annita on April 15, 2006
|As it is the bitter guard season here in Kerala and we have lots of them in our courtyard, every day there will be some or other bitter guard dish at home. Today I’m posting a different recipe with bitter guard which my amma made yesterday. I’m not claiming that this is excellent or anything, but a good one for bittergourd lovers and it goes well with rice.The curry was not that bittery too. This is actually my Grandma’s recipe and it goes like this..|
|Bitter Guard Sliced thin and of half inch length – 1
Raw Green Mango Sliced thin – 1
Sliced Onion – 1 (Using shallots/small onions enhances the taste)
Chopped Ginger – 1 tsp
Chopped Garlic – 1 tsp
Green Chillies sliced – 3
Curry leaves – a sprig
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
Coriander powder – 5 tsp
Chilly Powder – 2 tsp
Thin coconut milk – 2 cups
Thick coconut milk -1/2 cup
Salt – to taste

|Make a paste with turmeric powder,coriander powder and chilly powder adding a little water.
