Peel mangoes and cut (preferably in vertical) them into thin pieces and keep the pieces aside.
Take the chopped Green Chilli, Shallots/Onion, Ginger and some Curry leaves in a cooking vessel (preferably Manchatti – Clay pot – which is generally used in Kerala for making Fish Curry etc.) and mix them well with hand and keep it for about 5 – 10 minutes.
After about ten minutes, add the coconutmilk (randaam paal) into this mix, stir it well and boil it in medium flame.
When the mix is boiled well, add the Mango pieces and cook it properly in the Coconutmilk (generally it will take about 10 – 15 minutes to cook the Mango pieces).
After about 10 – 15 minutes add the thick Coconutmilk (Onnaam Paal) also and boil the mix for about another 3 – 4 minutes at a low flame.
Heat about 2 Tsp Coconut Oil in a Cheenachatti/Frying Pan, fry the chopped Shallots/Onion in the Oil and when colour of the Shallots/Onion turns into golden/brown, add it into the already cooked Curry.
Before seasoning, add some curry leaves on top of the Curry and then add the fried Shallots/Onion on top of these curry leaves along with the Oil left in the Cheenachatti/Frying Pan, so that the leaves also will get fried and give a good taste for the Curry. The tasty dish is ready.
