Pachamangaa Curry / Green Mango Curry

When ever i get raw mango from market i get 2 or 3 as i love making fish curry with mango more than using tamarind pulp. It tastes really great. This curry is one which i make when we don't get fish at home. Because of its tanginess.. it really raises the taste of the curry.. and we get satisfied as if , having a fish curry without fish in it.. Duplicate fish curry...

  1. Raw mango - 1/2 of a mango ( not very tangy)
  2. Tomato - 1 medium
  3. Green Chilli - 3
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/4 Tsp
  5. Red chilly powder - 1 1/2 Tsp
  6. Curry Leaves - 1 Sprig
  7. Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
  8. Crushed cumin powder - 1/4 Tsp
  1. Oil - 1 Tbsp
  2. Mustard Seeds - 1/4 Tsp
  3. Fenugreek seeds - a pinch
  4. Dry red chilly - 1
  5. Curry leaves - 1 Sprig

  • Grind the grated coconut to a very smooth paste by adding  a pinch of turmeric powder to it.Keep aside.
  • Peel the skin of the mango and cut it lengthwise pieces.
  • In a manchatti/ sauce pan, add cut mango pieces, roughly chopped tomato, green chilly slit, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, salt and add 1/2 cup water . Mix well and let it boil.
  • When it comes to boil, add the coconut paste to it. When it boils , add cumin powder and curry leaves.Check salt .Remove room heat.
  • In  a kadai, heat some oil, splutter mustard seeds, lower he flame and add fenugreek seeds ,dry red chilly and curry leaves. Off the flame and pour this on to the curry.
  • Serve with hot rice.

  • Check the tanginess of the mango first.
  • When used in curry if it is more tangy, increase the level of red chilly powder to 2 Tsp.
  • Do not over fry the fenugreek seeds, as later it might tastes bitter.

  1. Pachamanga curry super. mouth watering curry. I just made yesterday. But I don't use tomato. will try this version next time

    1. Thank you Nandoo, yes you can avoid using tomato, if mango is too tangy. Coz after sometime when curry is sits for sometime, the tanginess might increase. Do send me the photos when you prepare it ok, so that i can add to my post.
