Mango Kutcha   Recipes from Mauritius



  1. Wash the mangoes. Coarsely grate into a bowl. Traditionally, the mango is crushed in a mortar and pestle. Kutcha means crushed.
  2. Blend the turmeric powder into the vinegar to make a paste. 
  3. Over medium heat, put the mustard oil in a saucepan large enough to contain the mango kutcha. Stir fry the crushed ginger, garlic and sliced red chillies. Cook for 1 minute. Add the vinegar and turmeric mixture. Mix well. Add the finely chopped onions and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the grated mango to the fried mixture. Add the crushed mustard seeds. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  5. Serve hot or allow to cool down. Recommended as an accompaniment for dhal purees.
  6. Enjoy.
