Fish Mango Curry (Meen Manga Curry)

Kind of status update for me after 7 years 😂 this new job that I got makes it so, been a month now & am overflowing with happiness and sadness of course is inevitable  when you send your baby to a day care. All in the family is getting immunized naturally to fight all trendy viruses now…counting all these as experiences…may help in long run :/
However I am really very happy to start working after a long break.Since sharing my life events and experiences in this space has become my habit, am at present super excited !

So the news in my husbands hometown (Angamaly) is the release of a Malayalam movie called
 “Angamaly Diaries” We were watching the movie-trailer and I got stuck with this “Meen -Manga Curry (Fish-Mango in coconut milk gravy) which is one of the best dish I have had in their place and Ammamma (Nithin’s Granny) used to make it so very deliciously..

I didn’t wait  to make this fish -manga curry 😊

This is a must try recipe if you are a fan of fish cooked in tenga-paal (Coconut milk), raw mango gives this a classic tangy twist….

& this curry with some Kerala rice…for the Malayalaies – this is Yumminess overloaded !!

Note – I didn’t have fresh Manga (Raw mango) so I used the salted Mango pieces(uppu manga)

Manga – Uppilittathu (Raw mango in brine) this is one of the treasures that I have in my kitchen.

Here’s the  Recipe
