Meen Manga Curry/ Fish Raw Mango Curry

Meen manga curry


This is a traditional fish curry of Kerala which is spicy, sour and flavorful and raw mango is used as flavoring and souring agent instead of tamarind or kudampuli. This is is common curry back home especially when mangoes are in season and for the rest of the year sun dried mangoes( Ada Manga) are used to make this curry. King fish,mackerel,sardines, prawns all taste delicious with mangoes. This curry is a quick version.You can grind shredded coconut into a fine paste and use in this recipe which gives a thick creamy gravy or just use thick coconut milk

Ingredients
Fish - 1 1/2 lb
( I used king fish)
Mangoes diced- 2 small
Shallots- 8-10
Ginger- 2 inch thick
Green chilly-2
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/3 tsp
Thick coconut milk- 3/4 cup
 Thin coconut milk- 1 cup
( If using shredded coconut 3/4 cup)
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Dry red chilly-1
Curry leaves
Coconut oil

Clean and cut fish and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add red chilly and curry leaves followed by shallots and ginger. Saute till onions have changed color and ginger has nice aroma. Add turmeric powder, chilly powder and saute for a few seconds and add mango pieces and slit green chilly. Add thin coconut milk and allow this to come to a boil. Add in fish pieces, cover and cook in medium flame till fish is cooked. Now add fenugreek powder and thick coconut milk and allow to simmer.Finally add a  few fresh curry leaves and a few drops of coconut oil on top.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy.
