Mango Kuzhambu (Manga Kootan) is one of those typical kerala gravies that I love to make. This is one dish that’s simple, bursting with flavours and can be made in a jiffy. All you need is a nice tangy raw mango and a few minutes and ou have this amazing kuzhambu ready. Without any further delay, let me share with you the recipe.


1 half of a raw mango chopped n to big pieces.

1 spoon of Methi seeds (Venthayam)

4-5 red chillies.

1/3 cup of coconut.

A pinch of jaggery.

1-2 ladles of thicd curd.


Mustard & Curry Leaves.


  • Drop the cut mango pieces in the copper bottom vessel, and pour water adequate to cover the mangoes, add a pinch of turmeric and allow to cook for 7-8 mins. Switch off the stove.
  • Now roast  the methi seeds and red chillies in oil and grind with the coconut to a smooth paste.
  • Add this paste to the cooked mango, add salt, and a little water(around 1/2 cup)   to get it in to a kuzhambu consistency.
  • Switch on the stove till it boils and turn off the heat. Add 1-2 ladles of curd and mix it in well.
