Mavina kayi saaru recipe - Ambe ambat recipe - Mango curry

mango curry in a serving bowl
Mavinakayi saaru recipe -  This is a simple and easy to prepare curry made with coconut, raw mangoes, chilly powder etc. I have been making mango curry for so many years during mango season. I like the tangy taste in the curry most. So I am sharing the recipe which I prepared today and we all enjoyed with fried papads and hot rice. This is a coconut based curry made in South Karnataka homes with different versions. Adding raw mangoes instead of tamarind in fish curry is also a traditional way to use it in curries.
