Manga Kootan / Raw Mango Curry

Summer time and that means arrival of Mango in the market!!

Ancient times, our ancestors used the local seasonal fruit and vegetables in their cooking and that's called "Nadan" cooking.

Today I am sharing with you a "Nadan" Recipe, a yummy Sweet, Sour and Spicy curry using Raw Mango.

Raw Mango Curry / Manga Kootan - is a special dish made during Vishu time (new year as per Malayalam Calendar in the month of April) . 

Simple yet tasty curry which can be had with Plain Rice and also a good accompaniment for Dosai.

Which variety to be used :- Thothapuri variety is the best. But you can use the pickling mango as well but in lesser quantity as it may be more sour.

Coconut oil is best suited for this dish.

You will need :-

  1. Raw Mango (Big) - 1 No. 
  2. Cucumber (Madrasi Kakdi) - 1/2
  3. Jaggery - 1 Tbsp
  4. Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
  5. Green Chilly (Vertically Slit) -  - 2 Nos. (or as preferred)
  6. Salt to taste

For Tempering :-

  1. Coconut Oil - 1 Tbsp
  2. Mustard Seeds - 1 Tsp
  3. Red Chillies - 2 nos. (broken)
  4. Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
