I love mangoes. Period.I know I have been doing lots of PR for mangoes in the last few days, to the point of exhaustion I guess - well, I won't blame ya! I am like that. Sometimes.:) But I have to talk about those luscious things yet again! (sorry!) Its like I have rediscovered mangoes. I hate adding sweet things into savory dishes. And a partner with similar tastes is not helping me either. But the day I made and tasted Mango Salsa, I was smitten. Never realized a fruity, sweet and ripe mango could make such a great non-dessert dish. And once in, I couldn't get out. The next thing where I tried mangoes was in this dish of black beans. It happened unintentionally. I was making this pot of black beans and enjoying mangoes on the side. When I realized that my beans were almost done, I wanted to do a taste test and immediately put a spoonful of beans in my mouth. The taste of creamy beans along with sweet mangoes in my mouth mingled and the sensations on my palate were enchanting. So I peeled another mango, chopped them and added it to my beans. It was so good and thus another mango savory dish became my friend. (Turns out, black beans and mango are a popular combo! - courtesy Google.)
I made this Black Beans with Mango as a side dish for chappati but i preffered to eat it on its own as a salad.
I made quesadillas with this black bean and mango combo. I would suggest a few raw onions in with the cooked ones. The sweetness of the mango needs a little more of a contrast with onions, cumin. Top with sliced black olives and sour cream. Good eating, good loving.
I use an Indian model. Since we all have different models, I did not want to elaborate on the pressure cooking steps since mine may be different (I have whistle system and use the number of whistles to determine the cooking stage). I leave it free for everyone to use their pressure cooker they way their manual advises to cook foods.
