Manga Curry

What's the difference between mambazha pulissery and this manga curry ? For this manga curry, pachamanga (unripe mango) is used and for mambazha pulissery, ripe mango is used.

Since pachamanga is sour, yogurt is not necessary to make this curry. I was supposed to make this curry with unripe mangoes, but by the time i got down to make this curry, mangoes became semi-ripe. Anyways, i went ahead and the final result was really a yummy mango curry. The aroma was overwhelmingly so similar to mambazha pulissery.


2 - Unripe or semi-ripe mangoes, peel skin off & chopped
1/4 tsp - Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp - Red chili powder
Salt to taste

Grind to a paste

1/2 to 3/4 cup - Grated coconut
1/2 tsp - Jeera / Cumin
1/4 tsp - Turmeric powder


1 tsp - Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp - Fenugreek seeds / Uluva
2 sprigs - Curry leaves
2 - Dry whole red chili
Coconut oil 0r sesame oil


1) Chop mango to small pieces. Cook mango in little water with turmeric and red chili powder. Add salt to taste. Cook till mango is cooked, which won't take long.

2 ) Add ground paste to the cooked mango. Add just enough water to get a thick gravy consistency. Adjust salt to taste and cook for a minute on low heat.

3 ) Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan. Pop the mustards, then add fenugreek seeds, dry chili and curry leaves. Season the manga curry with this. Take off the stove and serve.

Serve as a side dish with rice.
