Author Notes: To me the fusion of mango and coconut milk resurrect happy memories. Of summer time with extended family. Of the heat of Bombay assuaged by a bowl of cold soup. It is a quintessential soup of summer. —nykavi
ripe Mangoes or
cups frozen Mango slices
cups Coconut Milk
teaspoon Mustard seeds
teaspoon Kosher Salt
- Place mangoes in a deep pan and cover with water. Put pan over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Lower flame and cook mangoes for 20 minutes. Pour out the hot water and replace with cold water. Do this a couple of times till mangoes come to room temperature. Take mangoes out of cold water and dry them.
- Gently massage cooked mango tto loosen pulp. Make a small tear at the stem end of mango . Hold the mango over a wide bowl stem end facing down , and squeeze all the juice into the bowl. The tear will widen and eventually let the mango seed slide into the bowl.
- Tear open the skins and scrape the pulp off with a knife.
- Scrape excess pulp off the seeds before you throw them away.
- Pour the pulp into a blender or food processor. If you use frozen mango, defrost and start recipe at this point.
