Shenga kairi chi Amti (Drumstick and Raw Mango in coconut Gravy)


This is a typical malwani fish gravy recipe, here fish is substituted with drumsticks. This is made especially in month of Shravan, when non veg is not cooked in most of the houses,people satisfy their urge of eating fish by making this dish.

I have got a gift from my mom, fresh drumsticks from her garden .

So today I tried my hand on  this dish and result was awesome.


4 Drumstick deskinned and cut into pieces.

1 Raw Mango cut into long strips.

1 small Onion finely chopped.

1 cup Coconut Milk.

1 tsp Jaggery

Salt to taste.

For the masala

1 medium sized Onion.

1/2 cup grated Coconut.

2 tspn Dhana(corriander seeds)

2 tspn Red chilli powder.

1 tbsp Haldi powder.

1 tsp Black pepper powder.


Grind all the masala ingredients to a fine paste.keep aside.

Wash clean and deskin drumsticks.Cut them into finger size pieces.

Apply masala paste to drumstick and mango pieces and keep aside.


Heat oil in a kadhai.Add chopped onion,let it turn brown.

Add marinated drumsticks and mango.


Cook stiring well till masala starts leaving oil.

Add 1/4 cup water and salt.

Cover and cook till drumsticks are cooked.

Now add coconut milk.Mix well.Cook for another minute.

Remove in a serving bowl and serve  hot with steam rice.

Tip-Don’t boil the gravy after adding coconut milk.You can use fresh coconut milk or readymade coconut milk powder.Fried potatoes can also be added to this dish.If you don’t have raw mangoes instead 1 tsp of tamarind pulp can be used.
