Mammidi Allam Mukkalu or Manga Inji

Mammidi Allam Mukkalu, Manga Inji, Mango Ginger pieces in lemon juice along with some green chillies

Mammidi Allam Mukkalu! The very term makes my mouth water. Mammidi Allam (also known as Manga Inji or Mango Ginger) is a special type of ginger that has the aroma of raw mangoes.

The simplest way to enjoy it is to pickle it for a day or two in lemon juice with some green chilly pieces. The result is a tangy, spicy pachadi that is a phenomenal side dish for Majjiga Annam (Curd Rice/Thayir sadam) or Mudda Pappu Annam (Plain Boiled Tuvar Dal and Rice).
