The mango season has started already and what are you waiting for? It is time to experiment more recipes with these delicious and sweet mangoes. After the Mango Mousse recipe, today I am going to jot down the recipe for one of the traditional dishes in Kerala – Manga Kaalan/ Mango curry. This dish is also called as Mangapazhamkaalan or mangapullisery too.And it goes very well with rice which is a heavenly combination. It is super easy to prepare this dish and has very minimal requirements. In olden days, mangoes were available in the backyard of our houses in Kerala and this used to be “the dish” at everyone’s home during the mango season. My grandmother makes this yummy manga kaalan on the first day of Onam and it used to be a feast at home. I bought some champagne mangoes from the nearby grocery store which tasted extremely sweet. I suggest you all to buy sweet and fluffy mangoes. The curry gets its taste from the mangoes.
Tips to select sweet champagne mangoes: Just look at the color! As the fruit matures, it turns from green to a deep, golden yellow.The mango will also get progressively softer as it ripens.
Your mouth is watering already right? Never mind! here comes the recipe for you.
