Mango Curry

Mini Mango Curry
This curry is made using small ripe mangoes that are available only during raining season in coorg  &  Mangalore. I am not sure if you get this anywhere else. Well I found similar to these here in Singapore & they are called Thailand small Mangoes. They look very riped & cute but they don’t taste as good as the ones that I have had in India. Back home we called these mangoes in Kannada, Kaadu Mavinkai (Means Forest Mangoes) or Raan Ambo in Konkani. We love these mangoes &the curry is just out of this world. These mangoes are green in color yet they are riped, Tangy, sweet. These are purely seasonal & my Mom used to preserve these in a jar using salt. My mouth is watering while I am typing these lines …. Hmmmmm. If you are pregnant, I am sure you will feast on theseJ.  For this curry, you need to remove the skin of the mango or else the skin can give a bitter taste.
