About Kairi Mirch Ki Sabji

Rajasthani Kairi Mirch Ki Sabji (Green Mango & Chili Sabji) is a spicy, sweet, and tangy curry made using raw green mangoes, green chilies, and a few spices.

It comes together in under 20 minutes and makes for a great side dish with Indian meals, especially in summer.

This sabji is more like a pickle and keeps well in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. You will find it in most Rajasthani homes during summer when fresh green mangoes are in season.

Ingredients

Green Raw Mangoes – Choose raw mangoes that are green in color, a little firm to the touch, and free of bruises and soft patches.

Green Chilies – While raw mangoes make it tangy, green chilies add the perfect hint of spiciness. Choose the chilies according to your spice tolerance. I like to use mildly spiced chilies to make this sabji.

Spice Powders – This curry uses basic spice powders such as turmeric powder and red chili powder.

Others – You will also need oil, asafetida (hing), brown mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds (methi dana), nigella seeds (kalonji), fennel seeds (saunf), salt, water, and granulated white sugar.

  1. Hi,
    Thank you for sharing this recipe 🙂 i would like to point out a common misunderstanding where in India, raw equals to unripe, but actually, in English, raw means uncooked, so a correct name for this would be unripe mango curry and not raw mango curry as I was looking for raw vegan indian dishes 🙂 still inspired by your curry to try to make this into a raw vegan curry. Thanks again!
