Uddamethi meaning udda – urad dal and methi – methi seeds is a pure veg traditional dish which we prepare for any festivals or special occasions. One of my favorite dish is Amlechi Uddamethi / Goan Raw Mango Curry and I never miss any opportunity to cook and eat this. This can be made with raw mango which we call amli or can also be made with aambado ( Konkani ) / ambara( Hindi) / aamada (Bengali) / Indian hog plum.
This Amlechi Uddamethi / Goan Raw Mango Curry is very easy to prepare and is one of the Goan GSB’s (Goud Saraswat Bramhin) delicacy. This is Goa’s best kept secret and is a must try during any festive occasion or during any days where we eat pure veg food.
My mom gave me some raw mangos last time when I visited Goa. I preserved these raw mangos in my fridge as I could not prepare anything with those raw mango’s. I was thinking of preparing raw mango pickle. But then when Diwali came, I thought I should prepare my family favorite “Uddamethi”. It was a Curry was perfect for the auspicious occasion of Diwali.
Sharing this with my Dear readers so that they can try the traditional Goan pure veg dish.
