Raw or Green Mango Relish / Methamba
Raw or Green Mangoes are available in abundance in India once the month of May comes around. This dish, known originally as Methamba, is a typical Maharashtrian recipe which can be found in most of the Marathi households. Why just Marathi, one may ask? For the simple reason that most of the mangoes grow in and around Maharashtra, particularly Konkan, as the soil is suitable for their growth. This sweet-sour-tangy-spicy relish can be an accompaniment to the main meal, or can be used as a spread on rotis and breads for a quick fix meal!
