Mambazha Kuzhambu / Mango Gravy


I learnt this kuzhambu from my mom. She loves mango. So, she would always try to make as many dishes as possible with mango. This tastes really yummy. This is a great recipe for Mango lovers like me and my mom.

Ingredients :

1. Mango - 1 ( Not fully ripe, should be firm too)
2. Onion - 1/2 Cup (Finely Chopped)
3. Tamarind Juice - 1 Cup (should be thick)
4. Water - 1.5 Cup
5. Sambar Powder - 1.5 tsp
6. Red Chilly Powder - 1 tsp or adjust to your taste
7. Jaggery - 1 inch piece
10. Salt - Needed qty
11. Oil - 1 tbs
12. Curry Leaf - Little qty

For Seasoning,

Vengaya Vadagam (seasoning Vadam) / Mustard & Urad dhal



Procedure :

1. In a pan, add oil. Now, add the onion & curry leaves. Fry well.
2. Add Tamarind juice, water, Sambar powder, Chilli powder and salt.
3. Mix well. Allow it to boil for 5 minutes in medium heat.
4. Now, add the cut mango pieces.
5. When the contents start to thicken, add the jaggery piece. Medium the stove.
6. When you see the oil getting separated from the kuzhambu, fry vengaya vadagam and add to it. If you don't have the seasoning vadam, add mustard and urad dhal each 1 tsp fried in oil.
7. Serve hot with rice.

hi Nithu,

Nice blog dear. This is the first time i am visiting.
I would like to know with what else can this gravy be enjoyed, like besides rice ?

lovely and delicious kuzhambu for a change.

We make almost a similar version with green mango sans onions, called thiyya pulusu in Andhra but it would be very watery.
I notice and couldn't stop wondering about the addition of that much tamarind and mango in this recipe. Doesn't it make this tangier? Just wanted to know. :)
