Sihi amtekayi or god ambade gojju recipe - The god ambade gojju is a sweet and sour chutney, prepared with god ambade or amtekayi. Amtekayi or ambade is a seasonal tangy fruit of  South India. It has large and thorny seeds. 

There are two varieties of ambade or amtekayi available in that part. One is tangy amtekayi and another one is slightly sweet amtekayi. The gojju I have prepared is made of sweet amtekayi. This is also called as god ambade in konkani.

There may be a misconception that gojju and chutney are same. But the same is not true. Gojju literally means boiled ingredients ground to a smooth paste like chutney.  But while preparing chutney, ingredients are not boiled.
