Vella Manga Curry

Vella Manga Curry

Vella manga curry is side dish made with green mango and yogurt. It looks like a pachadi but  has a distant taste of kadumanga or mango pickle served for sadhya. I had a faint memory of  this sadhya dish which I tasted years back. At that time I thought that it was kadumanga achar mixed with some yogurt. I have been searching for this recipe and recently fond in an old cook book. If you are looking for Sadhya recipe with mangoes for Onam, give this recipe a try. You will surely love it.

Green mango chopped- 1 cup
Green chilly-2
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Grated coconut- 3 tbs
Yogurt- 3-4 tbs
salt to taste

To temper
Curry leaves - a few
Dry red chilly-2
Mustard seeds- 1/3 tsp
oil as needed

Peel the skin of the green mango and chop into small pieces less than half inch thick cube.Mix this with chilly powder, fenugreek powder,chopped green chilly, salt and set aside for half an hour.
Make a fine paste of coconut and half tea spoon mustard seeds and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add dry red chilly and curry leaves and fry. Add the mangoes mixed with chilly powder and saute for two minute or till it becomes soft. Add the coconut paste and saute  till the raw flavor disappears. Add yogurt and mix. Switch off the flame.Serve as a side dish for sadhya.
