Ambya Thiksani Humman ( Spicy Mango Curry)

Well, wondering whats this dish with a long name????? Well, its Raw Mango & Bikkand - Thats jackfruit seed, all put together in one yummy curry. In the photo you'll see the jackfruit seeds too.

This is a spicy dish & goes extremely well with dosas & idlis, or even plain curd rice. This is all my all time favourite dish & i make it often when the jackfruit season is on.. eat the fruit & save the seed for a yummy curry... so practically no waste of anything!! Hows that?

I know in US we dont find the jackfruit seed. This curry can be made minus the Bikkand too & tastes great.Thats how i made all these years......

Raw Mango - 1
Bikkand(Jackfruit Seed) - 8-10 no
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Red Chillies - 4
Bedgayi Chillies - 2 (this is only for colour)
Tamarind- a tiny piece
Oil - 2 tbspns
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Meethi Seeds - 3/4th tsp
Salt - to taste.

1. Chop the mango into big cubes.

2. Pressure cook the Jackfruit seed & then peel the outer skin(thats non-edible). Then cut it into 2 pieces.

3. Roast in a little oil - red chillies till slightly brown. No need to roast bedgayi chillies.

4. Now grind together - coconut, redchillies, bedgayi chillies, tamarind to a fine paste.

5. In a pan add oil, then season with mustard seeds & meethi seeds. Then add the ground masala & mango & jackfruit seed & mix everything well. Add required salt & water & bring to a good boil.

6. Make sure mango is cooked & gravy thickens....

Serve with hot dosas & idlis. Its a perfect accompainment!This can be stored for 3-4 days too.
