Mango Curry/Manga Thodu Curry

Mango Curry/Manga Thodu Curry

Recipes with raw and ripe mangoes are integral part of Kerala cuisine.Manga thodu curry/mango curry is a easy side dish for rice. This is a central Kerala style thodu curry/side dish for Sadhya. I got this recipe from my mother-in law and she calls this as Kadu Manga. It is different from the regular mango pickle and does not have shelf life like pickles. The mango used for this recipe is not sour and raw,but little sweet and slightly ripened. It should be firm to touch. Coconut is added in this curry and it has a different and unique flavor. I have already posted recipes like Kadu Manga(pickle mango) and Vella Manga Curry.

Mango chopped- 1 1/2 cup
Garlic- 4-5 pods
Curry leaves - a few
Chilly powder- 1 1/4 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/4 tsp 
Pepper powder- 1/2tsp 
Cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
Mustard powder- 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida/kayam/hing- 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Thick coconut milk- 3/4 cup

To temper
Curry leaves - a few
Dry red chilly-2
Mustard seeds- 1/3 tsp
oil as needed
Peel the skin of the mango and chop into small pieces .Crush garlic and curry leaves into a course mixture. Mix chopped mango  with chilly powder,pepper powder, cumin powder fenugreek powder, mustard powder, the crushed garlic and curry leaves and salt. Set this aside for at least 2-3 hours.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add dry red chilly and curry leaves and fry. Add hing and the spice mixed mangoes.Saute for two to three minute or till it becomes soft. Add thick coconut milk and allow to simmer and thicken.Switch off the flame.Serve as a side dish for sadhya.

Try it
Hope you will enjoy this recipe!
