    This tastes good. A bit on the sweet side so next time I will use more chillies

    Reeja, it is a nice recipe. I liked it. I have heard about a ripe mango curry that is prepared without boiling it. Do you have any idea, it is also from Malabar/Kerala.

      @Usha : Greetings. We wont allow the curd to boil while preparing mango curries. It should only be warmed lightly.
      I don’t know about a method of preparing ripe mango curry with out warming the curd. Let me discuss it with my friends and if I find it, I will let you know. Don’t forget to share it with me if you get it 🙂
