Madhwa Sampradaya Kai  Rasa

OMG! What a Taste , What an Aroma . 

I profusely Thank my very good friend Vimala Vijayendran  for sharing such a delicious recipe. The flavours play in this dish. Can make this Kai Rasa  for Dwadasi Paaranai. I have used mango to make this Kai Rasa. Goes well with  Soft Bun Dosas, Ven Pongal, Arisi ( rice ) Upma and Plain Rice with a nice raitha and pappad.


Peeled and cubed  mangoes – 2 cups

Thick tamarind extract – 1 and 1/4 cups

Gingelly oil – 1 tablespoon

Mustard seeds – 4 teaspoons

Urad dhal – 1 teaspoon

Methi ( fenugreek ) seeds – 1 teaspoon

Bydagi ( or ) Kashmiri Dry red chillies – 5 or 6

Heat a pan. Season. Add the chopped mango pieces. Add the turmeric powder. Keep the flame on medium. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add the thick tamarind extract. Cover and cook on sim flame for 5 minutes.
