Very easy to make it,

All you need is, 1 medium sized raw mango, Jaggery or Sugar, mustard seeds, 1/4 teaspoons, 1/4 teaspoons of cumin seeds, curry leaves few, finely chopped coriander leaves chopped for garnish.(optional)

add little turmeric powder, if required add water and sugar or jaggery and let it boil for 5 minutes,till we get the thickness
