Chemmeenum Mangayum Thenga Arachu Vachathu (Prawns and Raw Mango with ground Coconut )

 

 

Chemmeenum Mangayum Thenga Arachu Vachathu always make me feel nostalgic. My maternal grandmother used to make it often. The combination of shrimps with the sourness of the mango and mild sweetness of the ground coconut takes it to a whole new level. A curry that goes very well with rice.

Make sure to use sour mango for better flavour.
