Raw mangoes are commonly used in South Indian cooking. The tangy taste can be either be a subsitute for tamarind (another common ingredient) or can be used by itself for their unique flavor. In this recipe, I have tried to make a thick stew which can be a great accompaniment for several dishes. Hope you enjoy it as well!
