Amba Maluwa (Mango Curry)
1 medium ripped mango
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 teaspoons minced ginger
1 onion (sliced)
salt – to taste
1 teaspoon chilli powder
½ teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoons Sri Lankan roasted curry powder
6 curry leaves
1 x 2.5cm cinnamon stick
2 cups coconut milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 tablespoons sugar
Wash the mango & cut it into pieces with the seed. Now in a large bowl mix all the spices & sugar with mango pieces (mango, salt, Sri Lankan curry powder, chilli powder, turmeric & sugar) and keep it in aside.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add ginger & garlic and fry it for 1 minute, then add curry leaves, cinnamon stick & onions and cook it for nearly 5 minutes.
When onions are cooked, add the mango pieces into the onion mixer and mix it well & keep it for nearly 10 minutes in medium heat.
Final step is adding the coconut milk, and stir the curry. Keep it on heat till the mango pieces are getting soft, but do not try to break the pieces. (Try to stir the curry without a spoon, shake the saucepan.)
Taste for salt.
Mainly with rice, but you can choose what ever you like most.
If you do not peel the mango before cutting, it will give you a good taste. (When I´m making mango curry, I do not peel it. :-)
