Hello Foodies,
The Mangalorean style Mango Curry (Kukku da Kajipu in Tulu) is a spicy, sweet and sour curry made with ripe mangoes, freshly ground masala and jaggery. This curry is not only prepared in all homes across Mangalore during summer but also served in traditional meal in functions.Ah, the joy of eating a whole mango drenched in the curry is an experience in itself.

Ripe Mango Curry


The mangoes used in this curry are of a particular variety which are very small in size juicy, tangy & a bit more fibrous than the other varieties. These are referred to as wild mangoes ( Katu Kukku in Tulu).But if you can’t get your hands on wild mangoes, just get any small variety of slightly under-ripe mangoes and this will work.


This curry is simple to put together and is packed with a great depth of flavor.It has the perfect blend of spice & sour flavors that makes it a lip smacking one.I am sure you will devour an extra scoop of rice when you make it.So here comes my Mom’s recipe for the delicious Mango curry.Serve it with steamed rice and relish the sweet and tangy flavors with a mild spice kick!

Notes
*You can soak the peels in 1/2 cup water for 10 minutes, squeeze them to collect all the juice and add this juice while adding the mangoes to the curry as well.
*Adding jaggery is just to balance the sourness from the mangoes. You can omit adding it if your mangoes are sweet enough.
