Manga Vatha Kuzhambu Recipe – Dry Mango Kulambu
Manga Vatha Kuzhambu Recipe – Dry Mango Kulambu rice mix is a sour and spicy dish prepared from dried mango pieces and tamarind extract. The recipe is quite simple and a good accompaniment for rice. I like it with idly, curd rice and coconut rice also. 🙂
In my previous posts, I had already talked about this tasty manga vatha kuzhambu a lot and told I would share this recipe soon. Here it is!!!! This Manga vatha kuzhambu requires only very basic ingredients available in any south Indian kitchen shelf. Like any other vatha kolambu, this also can stay for a longer time when kept refrigerated. You don’t have to prepare separate side dish when you prepare Maa vathal kulambu. 🙂 Just pair it up with just appalam/papad, it would be damn tasty. Whenever I prepare this, I prefer to have just curd rice and the spicy and tangy vathal kulambu mango pieces would serve as a great side dish. 🙂
As I told already, the recipe is quite simple. You don’t even have to peel onion or garlic for this kuzhambu. 🙂 You can add it though. 😐 For other vathal kulambu, we usually add small onions, but for this manga vathal kulambu, it’s not needed. If you are looking for other vathal kulambu, do check out our arachu vitta vathal kulambu (Coconut based vatha kuzhambu) and puli kulambu recipes. 🙂 You would need dried mango pieces in this recipe. We have a few mango tress in our place. During the mango season every year, my aunt cuts and dries the mango pieces in the scorching sun and saves for the year. When we prepare manga vatha kolambu using our dries mangoes, it comes out so good. At times, I even buy dried mangoes from the market. But those are too hard and dry and takes lot of time to get cooked. Over to Manga Vathal Kulambu recipe from Home MakingDelight with step by step photos..
Manga Vatha Kuzhambu Recipe | Dry Mango Kulambu Recipe | Manga Kolambu | Dry aam rice mix | Mavinkayi kolambu | Mavina Hannu kolambu | Dry Mamidi pandu kozhambu | Manka Vatral Kulambu
- Dry Mango pieces – 12-15
- Tamarind – a lemon sized ball
- Water – 4 cups
- Sambhar powder – 1.5 tbsp
- Curry leaves – a few
- Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
- Salt – as needed
- Oil – 1/4 cup
- Fenugreek seeds (Vendhayam/methi seeds) – 1 tsp
- Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
- Gingelly oil – a ladle
- Asafoetida (Hing/Perungayam) – 1 tsp
- Thalipu vengaya vadagam (Dry onion vadagam) – 1 tbsp
- Heat 2 cups of water in a pan and add the dried mango pieces and boil it for 15 minutes until the pieces soften. Take out the pieces and keep it aside.
- Soak tamarind in hot water for 15 minutes and add salt, turmeric powder and sambhar powder to it. Keep this aside.
- Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and 1/2 tsp of fenugreek seeds. When it splutters, add curry leaves.
- Add the tamarind-spice mix to it and let it boil. Add the cooked mango pieces also.
- Boil the vatha kolambu until it reduces to half its size. Add asafoetida.
- Now, keep the stove in simmer. Boil it until the oil separates from the kuzhambu and it becomes very thick like a paste.
- Heat gingelly oil in a pan and add 1/2 tsp of fenugreek seeds (methi seeds). Fry ‘Dry Onion vadagam – Thalippu vengaya vadagam’ in it. Turn the stove off and add this to your Manga Vatha Kuzhambu. You can fry curry leaves also at this point.
- Serve your tangy Mango Kuzhambu with rice and papad.
- You can add small onions and garlic also while sauteing.It’s not needed but you can add. I like it that way also. If you use onion and garlic, you don’t have to fry and add ‘thalippu vadagam’.
- Don’t reduce the oil quantity mentioned here. Gingelly oil (Nallennai) adds more flavor to this manga kolambu.
- Store-bought mango pieces would take long time to soften.
