Gujarti Fajeto / Mango in yogurt gravy

As you all know I chose mango as my fruit for this week's BM theme " Cooking with fruits " . I was thinking of making for savoury with fruits and so popped this delicious Fajeto from gujarati cuisine which i saw in a TV show long long back.It was so delicous with mango flavor it makes us  want for more :). Fajeto is a yogurt gravy made with mango pulp and yogurt which is not considered as kadhi or sabzi it is a separate kind of gravy which can be used to accompany with rotis or used as a gravy for  rice.It is is some what like a southindian morkuzhambu can be said as mango morkuzhambu.

1/4 tsp cumin seeds 
2 - 3 dry red chillies 
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1 sprig curry leaves 
2-3 tbsp chopped Coriander leaves 

  • In a bowl mix Curd mango pulp , turmeric pd, salt and keep it aside 
  • Heat the ghee in a deep pan and add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
  • When the seeds crackle, add the Ginger garlic paste , dry red chillies, asafoetida, curry leaves . Saute on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  • Add the curd-mango mixture, mix well and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
