Prawns, Drumstick Raw Mango Curry / Chemeen Muringikka Manga Curry

This is my M-I-L’s preparation, which was a hit among our friends and family. This is a perfect combination of prawns and drumstick with the perfect balance of the tanginess from  raw mangoes, which makes this curry irresistible.

In Kerala each and every household, has one or two drumstick plants in their backyard. The flower, fruit and leaves of this plant is used in many ways in cooking. The leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant. This dish is simple to make and has now became a favorite dish in our family. Raw mango can be substituted with kokum, which is usually used in Kerala dishes.

  2. Drumsticks- 2 nos
  3. Raw Mango- 1 no
