Maavinakai Appe Huli (Raw Mango Gravy)

Appe Huli is a side dish to be eaten with hot steamed rice and is a speciality of Sirsi-Sagar/Malnad regions of Karnataka. Thanks to a couple of my friends from Sirsi-Sagar, I get to try out a lot of Malnad dishes! And I must say that the Malnad recipes are as unique and flavorful as their culture and tradition!! Appe Huli is a fast and simple dish that takes very few ingredients. It is just perfect for the times when you are looking for a change from the usual rasam/sambhar menu. Here is the recipe.. Enjoi!


1 Raw pickling Mango

1/2 tsp Jaggery (optional)

1/2 tsp Lemon Juice (optional)

2 tsp Oil

1/2 tsp Urad Dal

1/2 tsp Chana Dal

2-3 Dry Red Chilies

4-5 Curry leaves

A generous pinch of Hing


  1. Peel and chop the raw mango into cubes; Add some water,salt and boil well until cooked.
  2. Remove the Mango pieces into a separate bowl and mash well. Add the water that was used to cook the mangoes and mix well; Add just enough water to bring it to rasam consistency.
  3. Add salt and mix; If the mango is not sweet enough, you could add some jaggery or sugar; Boil on stovetop for a minute.
  4. Temper with the chana/urad dal, red chilies, curry leaves and hing; Remove from stove and add lemon juice if the mango is not sour enough;Serve hot with rice.


  • You could also use garlic for tempering instead of hing; This would give a completely different flavor to the dish
  • Raw Mango Appe Huli tastes so good by itself that you could even have it as a soup!
Prep Time: About 15-20 mins;
Serves: About 2-3 people;

appey huli, ahhh, my fav. good one Ramya. we tasted it for the first time at my sis's wedding reception and simply fell in love with this. my sis's MIL is from sirsi and she gave me the recipe. is it served as a side dish? i thought it is served as a drink as its good for digestion but if u over do it it can make u feel very sleepy too.

I love anything with raw mango. Thanks for the recipe. We do not find good mango here. Really miss those sour mangoes back in India.... I had lot of them during my recent visit though.
