Raw Mango Curry

Raw Mango Curry

Raw Mango curry or Kacche aam curry is a dish quite popular in India. It’s normal to make variety of dishes out of mangoes either raw or ripe in the mango season.

This is my favourite dish, my mother use to cook this for me and I learned this from her. When I eat this I feel so happy from inside.

This dish is very easy to cook, requires very less time and too good in taste. I personally like this dish with jeera (cumin seeds) rice , green chillies and onion salad. Normally we cook this for lunch for for dinner.

Raw mango curry is an easy to make and tasty dish which goes very well with steamed or jeera (cumin seeds) rice and onion salad.
