If my memory serves me correctly, I tasted manga mappaas the first time at my Mom’s sisters place. The mildly sour raw mangoes cooked in coconut milk was yum. I loved it so much that day, that everytime I visit her I would request her to make it for me. However, I have started trying my hand at this recipe only very recently, as I was a little apprehensive whether D would like it. He is very choosy when it comes to gravies for rice. I am presenting this recipe with an immense sense of satisfaction, as I just witnessed my boy literally wiping the plate clean. Naturally this recipe moved on to “our favourite” list.. 🙂

    Hi…would love to try this recipe, but I always use “Homemade” coconut milk the tetra pack one..how does that
    work in this case???

  2. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Thats absolutely fine..for the third extract dilute the coconut milk say 1/3 cup coconut milk: 2/3 cup water, for the second, take half cup of coconut milk n water each. take pure coconut milk for the final

    Can we make this same recipe with green apple instead of raw mangoes and also does this dish go well with bread?

  4. Mareena Jerrish says:

    This is a typical South Indian recipe which goes well with rice. I have’t tried with apples, though your suggestion sounds interesting to me. I won’t be able to confidently give a green signal on this one though. Sorry 🙁
