Method:

  1. If the mango is too sour, soak in water for a few minutes, squeeze out the water and keep the mango aside. We require mildly sour mangoes.
  2. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and whey they start to splutter, add the curry leaves.
  3. Add the sliced onions and saute till they become soft.
  4. Tip in the green chillies, ginger and garlic and fry for a minute or till the raw smell goes.
  5. Add the coriander powder and fenugreek powder, followed by turmeric powder and saute for a minute.
