“This recipe is really easy to prepare, and it is SO delicious. You will love the mango relish with it, too!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the Relish: First you will want to peel your mango and then cut off the flesh from the pit.
  2. Place the mango in a bowl, and process it with a food processor, or simply mash it with a hand masher, whatever you choose to do.
  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and set aside.
  4. For the curry: In a clean food processor bowl, place the garlic, ginger, chiles and 3 tablespoons of water, and process until smooth.
  5. Next, heat your oil in a large saucepan, and add the whole coriander seeds, cumin seeds, and allow them to sizzle for a few seconds, allowing for the flavors to release a bit.
  6. Then add the ground cumin, the ground cardamom seeds, and turmeric and cook for about a minute or so.
  7. Then add the garlic paste that you made in the processor, along with the tomatoes and remaining water.
  8. Stir to mix well, and then add the mushrooms, okra, and garbanzo beans.
  9. Stir again, and then bring to a boil.
  10. Reduce your heat and then cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  11. Remove the lid and turn your heat up slightly and cook for about 8-10 more minutes (maybe less depending on your okra), until the okra is tender but not too soft (you dont want mushy okra).
  12. Remove from heat and add your chopped cilantro, stirring lightly.
  13. Serve with your mango relish and rice (I like it with basmati).
