Mango Fruit Curry

Mango fruit curry is one of the side dish. It is an easy  and quick preparing yummy dish. Savoury mango fruits are used here and you will surely enjoy eating " Mango Fruit Curry " I am sure. This curry is one of the traditional curry done during Mango season. (Udupi/Karnataka).
My father in law's house is in Salekeri (a small village), near Brahmavar./ Karnataka/ India. There are a few trees which bare these wild mangoes. Now a days its very hard to get people who can climb and pluck the fruit or raw mangoes. The half ripe mangoes start falling to the ground. It is one type of crazy thing that you go and check the ground for fallen mango. (These thoughts are still lingering in my mind.
Mangoes are plenty in the market these days and you can see varieties of mangoes in the market, is all because its the mango season now, Back at home in Salekeri (a small village near Brahmavar near Udupi), there are some mango trees. The wild mango tree has many many mangoes turning into fruits. But in the process it drops down some mangoes which are half ripen or yet to ripe fruits.
When we went home this time I picked some of those mangoes. 
These mangoes can be used for rasam, juice, mango payasa. (Rasayana). I have tried these mangoes with savoury curry. 
This is an easy dish and you can enjoy eating many main dishes with this Mango fruit curry for  chapatis, rice, dosa, idli so and so.
