Angamaly Style Pacha Manga Curry | Raw Mango Curry (Kerala Style)

Angamaly style Pacha Manga (raw mango) curry is a very simple yet delicious curry to serve with steamed rice.This curry has the perfect blend of spice & sour flavours that makes it lip-smacking one that make this a perfect curry served for the dinner night (athazha sadya) before marriage in Angamaly.I love anything with raw mangoes.This is a very simple recipe to prepare, hardly takes time to cook.

This curry is mostly made with muvandan manga, a common variety of mango which is readily available in Kerala, and so vinegar is added to adjust the sourness. I have tried making the curry without vinegar, as I always prepare this curry with the sour kind of mangoes, as muvandan manga is hard to find. In that case, there is no need to add vinegar. I am sure your kids will devour an extra scoop of rice when you prepare this curry.Read it along & don't forget to give it a try, enjoy !!!

  • Delicious pacha manga curry is ready to serve with rice .
* Thinly slice the onions, as there is no sautéing of onions involved.
* I have tried using raw mangoes and the very matured ones (slightly sweetish sour kind), both tastes good, but the sour ones taste best.(not the ripe ones)
* Add a tsp of vinegar for this measure if you wish to add.
* I have used canned coconut milk.But you can use fresh coconut milk too.
