Konju Muringakka Manga Etta Curry ( Prawns with Drumstick and Raw Mango Curry ) is a favourable seafood delicacy of certain places in Kerala. I learned this tasty recipe from my mother because my home town kollam, it is a very popular dish . Normally she prepares this non-spicy recipe during the drumstick and mango seasons in Kerala. This is one of my favourites ‘ Ozhichu Curry’ ( side dish with watery gravy ) so I prepare this recipe occasionally in my magic kitchen .You know guys? In Singapore, mangoes and drumsticks are always on season because our supermarkets are always seasoned with these kind of Indian vegetables 😉 🙂 So we can cook any kerala dish at any time 🙂 actually that is a great blessing for kerala food lovers like me :-).
Konju Muringakka Manga Etta Curry( Prawns with Drumstick and Raw Mango Curry ) is a combination of fresh prawns, drumsticks and green mango in a coconut ground paste.The highlight of this curry is its seasoning and its gives a special taste and aroma. You can use tomatoes instead of raw mangoes in this curry .Konju Muringakka Manga Etta Curry is great to serve with spicy fish curry or fish fry or mango pickle. Hmmmm….yummy…combination 🙂 hope you guys also love this seafood delicacy like me . Try it and enjoy 🙂
