Manga Curry/Achaar

Manga curry is the fastest version of a pickle that does not need hours of hardwork in the kitchen. It paints the banana leaf with its bright red color while awakening your tatsebuds that are lost with the various flavors of the sadhya.

Raw Green Mango (chopped): 1 cup
Chili Powder: 3 tablespoons
Turmeric Powder: 2 teaspoons
Fenugreek/Methi/Uluva:1/2 teaspoon
Hing Powder: a pinch
Mustard Seeds: 1 teaspoon
Curry Leaves: a sprig
Dried Red Chillies: 2-3

Marinate the cubed raw mango pieces in turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt and keep aside for about half hour. Heat some oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds and then add fenugreek seeds, dried red chillies, hing and curry leaves. Add the mango pieces and saute till the mango is soft. Adjust your salt and spice levels accordingly. You could also pour 1/4 cup water to get a little gravy. The manga curry is perfect to add the kick and color to your sadhya.

* Similar to pickles, manga curry tastes best if made ahead of time as the mango locks in all the spices with time.
