Kairichi Amti (raw mango in coconut curry)


Mango is a seasonal fruit and there are so many amazing dishes to make with the raw mango as well as ripe one, one falls short of time. I love the raw green mango as much as love the sweet ripe mango. Raw green mango tastes great as it is and even better when sprinkled with some salt and chilli powder.

The recipe here is a curry made with raw mangoes simmered in coconut gravy. Its a Konkani dish and it vegetarian version of fish curry which is made in Konkani houses. My hubby loves this version, so its commonly prepared in summer. 

This recipe is handed over to me by my mother, who in turn learnt it from her mother in law. My granny was an amazing cook when it came to fishes n seafood.. She was born n brought in Goa before getting married and later shifting to Mumbai. So she had some really amazing seafood recipes..
