Tempered Green Mangoes

We get this wonderful variety of green mangoes called Gini Mooti Mavinkayi which literally translates to Parrot Faced Mangoes :-) I don't know, what it is called in other languages though. Please to let me know, if you are aware of it.
These mangoes aren't extactly sour. The skin is not to be peeled off, as it lends a sweet taste to the mangoes.

We love eating these mango slices with some salt & chilli powder rubbed on them. But sometimes I also love to temper them with some mustard seeds, chilli & coriander powder .. YUMM

How To:
  • 2 Gini Mooti mangoes - washed & diced into small cubes
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • A few Curry Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • A big pinch of Haldi
  • 1/2 tsp of coriander powder
  • Salt as per taste
How To:
  • In a small frying pan, heat oil. Splutter mustard seeds & curry leaves
  • Add all the dry powders one by one, & mix in the mango cubes.
  • Add some salt. On low flame,mix everything together for a minute.
  • Turn of the stove & serve ..
Enjoi !!! But do not over indulge as you may end up with some bad cough ..

@Pratibha: It's GinI Mooti Mavinkayi that is kinda longish. I am sure you have seen plenty of it in Bangalore

Love this - it is a constant in our house during mango season. My son is crazy about this mango - and has even tried it with oregano seasoning (you know those sachets you get with home-delivered pizza :-))

This mango is called "Thothapuri" - in Hindi - with thotha = parrot.

In tamil it is called "Kili mooku maanga" - for parrot's beak.

It is the mango we see most hawkers selling, cut in strips and prettily displayed with masala (chili and salt) sprinkled on it. There, let me go away before I cause a puddle here :D I am salivating just thinking of it.

By the way, I really enjoy seeing your posts in my mailbox. But today, I had to come over. Thanks for the lovely recipes.

This looks mouthwatering. Mango is my favorite pickle and I don't mind having it just by itself :)

Curry Leaf said...

I love these (tothapuri) mangoes. I use them as such or in chaats. Love the tempered version.

This is the version you see the street hawkers sell in amazing presentations- from Nepal to the South of the continent.
It is known as Thatha-chundan = Parrot Lips, Killikokkan= Bird-Beak mangoes in Malayalam.
