Pazhutha Manga Pachadi Recipe Recipe (Kerala Style Ripe Mango Curry)
Pazhutha Manga Pachadi is a ripe mango curry that is quick and easy to make and is a great weeknight meal. It is sweet and spicy at the same time, with the pungent flavour of mustard. A milder version of this curry with curd is served during Vishu Sadya, but this version has more intense flavours. This recipe uses the Chausa variety of mango but you can use whichever variety you like the most, as long as it doesn’t have too much fibrous hair like Langda does. Pazhutha Manga Pachadi is best eaten with rice but also goes well with phulkas, parathas, dosa or appam.
