About KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru (Wild Mango Soup from Udupi-Mangalore) Recipe

Unlike the popular mangoes from India like Alphanso or Kesar, these tiny wild mangoes are fibrous and are usually quite sour with a hint of sweetness in them. They are mostly used in cooking many delicacies in my hometown and one such delicacy is KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju. KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju is probably one of simplest and easiest recipes as it uses just a handful of ingredients. But don’t go by the simple ingredient list as the taste and flavour of this unique Saaru/Gojju will blow your mind! To make this KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju, you start by peeling the wild mango peels and then little water is added to the juice is extracted from the green mango peels. Then they are cooked along with a lot of jaggary, slit green chillies and salt and finally an aromatic tadka of mustard and curry leaves finishes this whole dish! This KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju is served with rice and in my case, I like to drink it in a tall glass as a refreshing summer drink

Ingredients to make KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru (Wild Mango Soup from Udupi-Mangalore)

  • 8 -10 Ripe Wild Mangoes
  • 3/4 cup jaggery (adjust as per taste)
  • 1 large Green chilli, slit
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 10 -12 curry leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp Oil (Preferably coconut oil)

How to make KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru (Wild Mango Soup from Udupi-Mangalore)

  1. Wash and cut the tip of the wild mangoes. Peel the wild mangoes and keep the peels in a side.
  2. Take the peels in a container and add about 3 cups of water. Squeeze the peels to extract as much juice as possible and discard the peels.
  3. Add the peeled mangoes, jaggery, slit green chilli and salt to taste and bring the whole mixture to boil on medium flame.
  4. Simmer and cook for another 5 minutes until the mangoes are cooked through and the curry thickens slightly. Turn off the heat.
  5. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and curry leaves. When the mustard seeds start to pop and splutter, transfer the tadka to the KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju and mix them well.
  6. Serve this KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju with rice and enjoy!

My Tip:

For this KaaTu Mavina Hannina Saaru/Gojju, use the sour variety of wild mangoes with a hint of sweetness. You can replace the jaggery with brown sugar or palm sugar. Adjust the jaggaery and green chillies as per taste. If the mangoes are sweet ones, then you may need half of the quantity of jaggery used and vice versa.
