Mambalam Kuzhambu (Mango Curry)

Mangoes are favorite fruit for all. Especially my daughter love them a lot. As these are seasonal fruit, you can grab them as much as in this season. India is one of the largest producer of mangoes and they taste just delicious. The mango smell even tempts us to have it. Here I found mangoes, which were from Mexico. But they were not as tasty and flavorful as I had had in India.

Anyhow mangoes are mangoes, as they attract everyone and we love to have it being from any part of the world. I tried this mango curry and it came out really delicious and flavorful one. You can get the sweet, sour and spicy taste from this curry. Mangoes give the sweet taste and tamarind gives the tangy taste. Use ripe mangoes so that you can get the sweet taste.


Ripe Mango - 1 (cut to small pieces)
Red chillies - 3 or 4
Sesame seeds (Ellu) - 2 tsp
Tamarind - lemon size (extract about 2 cups of tamarind juice)
Jaggery (Vellam) - small piece
Chilli powder - 2 tsp
Hing/Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
Mustard - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 2 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 tbsp


1) Heat a pan. Dry roast red chillies and sesame seeds.

2) Roast it until sesame seeds starts to splutter. Let it cool and make fine powder of it.

3) Now heat a pan, add about 1 cup of water and add the cut mangoes. Also add a pinch of salt and let it boil.

4) Once it boils, add a small piece of jaggery, tamarind juice and the fine powder. Also add the salt and chilli powder to it.

5) Let it cook and become thick.

6) Now do the seasoning. Heat a pan and add oil. Add mustard seeds and once it starts to splutter, add the urad dal and curry leaves. Add the seasoning to the curry.

Sweet, spicy and sour mango curry is ready. Just mouthwatering recipe is all set to taste.
