Mangai vathal kuzhambu with Artichoke Thoran

Mangai vathal are sun dried raw mango slices.Mom brought these,this last trip because she knew how much i love these.We make theeyal and vatha kuzhambu with these.These vathals are super tangy , so we reduce the amount of tamarind in the curry.I served this with artichoke thoran, adapted from Inji pennu's version.She has step by step instructions of how to clean and chop artichoke.Do check it out.I wanted this post to be send for Mango mania, but got delayed by a day...:(

Are the dried mango slices unripe & sour or ripe & sweet? I love mango both ways, but am assuming unripe b/c the curry is "super tangy." Yum!
