Raw mango and drumstick curry

This is a recipe I got from my dear friend Ammu. This is a Keralite dish which is not over spicy. My daughter loves it to have with rice or idli or dosa. This is best served warm with rice.


Raw mango – 1/2 chopped

Drumstick – 1 ( you can use frozen also)

Green chillies – 2

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Salt – as required

To grind

Coconut – 1/4 cup

Jeera – 1 tsp

To temper

Shallots – 4 or 5 thinly sliced

Mustard – few

Dry red chillies – 2

Curry leaves – few

Coconut oil – as required


  • Cut mango into small cubes and drumstick into small pieces.
  • Slit green chillies length wise.
  • Cook mango,drumstick and green chillies in required water.
  • When it’s half done grind coconut and jeera to smooth paste.
  • Add ground coconut to the veggies.
  • Add turmeric powder and salt.
  • When the raw smell goes take it out from flame.
  • Heat a pan, temper items under ‘ to temper’ till shallots become golden brown.
  • Pour it over the curry.
  • Serve warm.
