Manga (Mango) Chammanthi

Posted by Annita on November 13, 2008

This is a quick dish prepared with sour green mangoes,the more sour the best.I love to have this for dinner along with Kanji(rice gruel) and pappadam.



This is how I make my Manga Chammanthi…

Ingredients :-



Green mangoes sliced – 1 cup
(If you want you can peel off the skin,but usually it is prepared with the peel on)
Green chillies – 4-5(use it accordingly)
Shallots – 2
Ginger – 1/2 inch piece
Grated coconut- 1 cup
Salt – to taste


Grind all the ingredients together in a wet grinder/small jar in the Indian mixer.If your mangoes are not sour enough add 1 tsp vinegar/lime juice while grinding.

    On an evening when I was tired from work, my mom was not at hoe and my husband was coming home hungry enough to eat an elephant, this recipe proved to be a life saver. Although it was a little too spicy, dear hubby loved it and I had to pull the plate away from him lest he ate it up also. Thanq so much….

  24. Shiba Pillai said

    I tried this recipe today and it was delicious! You are doing an excellent job with your blog.

  25. Anyone tried drawing anime/manga characters? Its not easy, but once you get the hang of it it’s amazingly fun, so many poses and positions!

  26. desdem0na said

    Why would you want to cook like this at home. Oily, spicy and ugly looking dishes. I don’t know if you will publish this comment but don’t go for the 25 people above, you will not be able to learn anything better if you let them affect you.

  27. Wonderful advice within this post, anime takes up a lot of of my time.

    Its like you learn my mind! You appear to know so much about this, such as you wrote the book in it
    or something. I think that you simply could do with some percent to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.
