South Indies: Uddamethi/Raw Mango Curry

Monday, June 06, 2011

I regret not having as many mango based recipes as I'd love to. And, now that the mango season is here, its never too late.

What I have for you today is a Raw mango curry from the Konkan region of Karnataka, I haven't made many konkani recipes, but it does have some unique recipes like this one .. I got this recipe from a beautiful blog, which is now abandoned, but I always peek into this space now & then ..
