Mavinkaai Gojju | Tangy Raw Mango Gravy

My recent love is Raw Mango.A few days back I picked up a couple of these and mom prepared some of my favorite dishes with raw mango.One of them is this gojju.This dish is extremely tasty when served with steamed rice and also goes well with Pongal.

Mom used:

Raw Mango - 1, cubed[Do not remove the skin/peel]
Thick tamarind extract - 1 cup
Turmeric powder- a large pinch
Asafoetida powder- a pinch
Milagai Podi - 2 tablespoons
Jaggery - powder- 2 teaspoons [ adjust to taste]
salt to taste


Mustard seeds - teaspoon
Fenugreek seeds- 1/4 teaspoon
Urad dal- 1 teaspoon
Gram dal- 1 teaspoon
Green chillies- 2 , slit
Curry leaves- a few

Sesame oil- 2 teaspoons

  1. Heat oil in a pan and put in the seasonings.
  2. When they crackle and the dals turn light brown, put in the cubed raw mango pieces and saute for 5 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Add the tamarind extract, half cup water, turmeric powder, asafoetida powder,salt and bring to boil.
  4. Simmer till the mango is tender but it should not get mushy.
  5. Dissolve the milagai podi in a little water to make a paste and add to the pan. 
  6. Stir well to mix.
  7. Add the jaggery and let it simmer for 2 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat and serve with steamed rice and pappad.
