Manga Parukku: Raw Mango Yogurt Curry

Manga Parukku

This recipe goes to the 'No Cook' event hosted by Padmaja of Seduce Your Tastebuds
This raw mango dish  in  mustard-coconut-yogurt base... almost a salad, is also known as Manga Pachhadi/Mango Pacchadi in other parts of Kerala.  This is a soothing summer  lunch dish and is served with rice.

Many versions of Pachhadi cook the Mango, add red chillies, and do a tempering with mustard seeds. Mallu friends from other parts of Kerala, call this recipe Manga Pachhadi with a tempering of mustard seeds, red chillies and curry leaves.

The raw mango-yogurt curry, called a Parukku, exists in our nook....This is basically a mild dish..instructions coming to me thus: Dice the raw mango fine, grind some coconut with a pinch of mustard seeds and a pinch of chilli, and add some yogurt, then season with salt! So the proportions are mine but the technique is traditional! :-)
3/4 Cup Raw green mango, finely diced
3/4 Cup grated coconut
1/2 Cup curd/yogurt
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1 finger hot green chilli, or 1 green chilli
1/2 tsp Salt

Finely dice the mango.
Grind the grated coconut with 1/4 tsp of mustard seeds and chopped green chilli,
Whisk the Yogurt well,
Season with salt, 
Add the ground coconut-mustard-green chilli paste, 
Add the finely chopped raw mango,
Served with a garnish of raw mango slivers!
