Manga Curry (raw Mango Curry)
Though Kerala is known for its traditional recipes infused in coconut, not every region in Kerala makes all their curries steeped in coconut. The Northern part of Kerala however has a penchant for adding coconut to every dish they make. My mom hails from Thrissur and her side of the family loves their every day curries with coconut based gravy. So here's one of our family favourites. If you get the right mangoes this curry will be tangy. Sometimes in Bangalore we don't get good sour mangoes and I am no judge of buying raw mangoes. In such situations, I add 2 tsp vinegar to the curry before adding the coconut milk. I know it is the cheat's guide to making this curry but what does one do when mangoes are not sour anymore?
