Pazha Manga Curry/ Sweet Mango Curry



Pazha manga curry is a sweet and spicy curry made with ripe sweet mangoes.It is extremely flavorful  dish and if you are lucky to get Kerala  naatu manga, chandrakaran,Kotturkonam or moovandan variety of mangoes,you should give this recipe a try.You may wonder, if it is ripe why not just eat it. But when ever I get ripe mangoes I cannot help remembering mango season in Kerala and aroma of different mango dishes that my mom and grandmother make ; from salted mangoes, pickles and sun dried mangoes to manga meen curry and from pulishery and pachadi to mambazham pradham there is a such wide variety of mouthwatering dishes...

Now coming back to this recipe  it is a traditional dish of Kerala and if you are a fan of mangoes you will relish this dish. It is a coconut based curry and is slightly different from mambazham pulisherry. It goes well with rice.

Ingredients
Ripe mango- 2 medium sized
Green chilly slit- 2
Chilly powder- 1/3 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Salt to taste
Jaggery- 1 tbs (optional)

To make a paste
Coconut grated- 1 1/3 cup
Cumin-a pinch
Shallots/pearl onion- 3-4
garlic -2 pod

Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- 2 springs
Shallots finely chopped- 1
Dry red chilly- 2
Coconut oil- 3 tbs



Cut mangoes into cubes. If you are getting the small variety  then you can just peel it and use as a whole.
In a pot mix mangoes,slit chilly, salt,turmeric and chilly powder and half cup of water cook till mangoes are tender.  Add jaggery and mix well.
Make a fine paste of coconut,cumin, garlic and shallots and mix this to the cooked mangoes. Simmer in low flame for about two minutes. Do not allow it to boil and switch off the flame.
Heat coconut oil in pan. Add mustard seeds and when they splutter add sliced shallots, dry red chilly and curry leaves and allow to get slightly brown. Pour this over the curry,mix and cover with a lid till it is ready to be served.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
