Lastly once the heat is off add the dhania, mix well then the mango chunks.
Close the lid and leave for 10 to 15 mins. The mango will go soft.

This is an old favourite of my mom. When one makes fish curry you can add chunks of mango. Its really delicious.
Can adjust the masala.
Serve with kitchree and beetroot.
