ಮಾವಿನಕಾಯಿ ಭೂಥ ಗೊಜ್ಜು/Raw Mango Curry

Mangoes mangoes , the thought of summer vacation one of the most wanted one to taste the different types of mangoes, the raw from thotapuri to the gojju mavinkayi (wild varieties) used for making gojju, sasve, thambili to the ripe wonderful Malgovas, raspuri, the neelam and not the least alphanso. I remember during our childhood times as my memory draws  with my bunch of friends at my aunts and even at my grandparents place would gather mainly in the afternoons hunt the backyards to strike the mango trees. One of them would be ready with uppu menasu(salt and chilli powder) and one other with some (crushed green chillis with salt and coconut oil) would mainly use for the raw thotapuris. We would just gather one by one all the mangoes and run to the front yards and munch those mangoes…….There are lot of recipes with mangoes which I just cherish. Here I fail to get the Kuchkayi mangoes( the wild huge mangoes) which is boiled and stored in salt Bharanis at my native mainly used for making gojjus/curries which has a pulpy texture and the seed size is quite small.

    When I read the heading I thought ohh…mavinkai gojju, I’m making some today too…then when I saw your pics and recipe I realized they are so different from mine. I bought 2 huge raw mangoes at the Farmers Market last week, will try your versions too. Your post sure brought back pleasant memories..attacking mango trees…hehe!

    Wow namrata you get the huge mangoes at this time you are lucky ! imagine just in karnataka there are so many different ways we cook and looking at around the world it is really a lot variation.

    However firm they are, mangoes are never as unripe as we get in India. They are always on the fruity side.
