Raw mango curry – Raw mango coconut milk curry

A simple curry with raw mango that goes well with Rice. It is a Kerala style curry. I got this recipe from a Malayalam cookery show on tv years back and have noted it down in my recipe book. It was so easy to cook. I love many recipes made with raw mango-like raw mango Rasam, mango pickle, raw mango dal, fish curry with raw mango, prawn mango curry… The ingredients for this recipe is quite simple. Today I cooked it for lunch along with Rice and spicy beetroot stir fry.
