God ambe sasam recipe - Mavina hannina sasive - Ripe mango sasam

Ambe sasam recipe - Ambe sasam is an absolutely delicious dish of coastal Karnataka and it is my favorite too. This is prepared with ghonta variety  of mangoes,  grown in the backyard of the house. It has sweet and slightly tangy taste which is specifically  used to prepare sasive.

These mangoes are small in size and full of fiber with slightly tangy thin pulp. These are specifically  used to prepare sasive or sasam. The gravy is prepared using fresh coconut. 

Tanginess of the mango is balanced by adding jaggery. Chilly powder adds an exotic taste to the dish. The mango sasive is made in various ways in konkan cuisine and it tastes great. Usually it is served as a side dish to main meal.
