​Ambyacha sasav/ Goan kokani style  mango gravy.

Traditionally it’s a Goan dish made from mangoes.It is sweet, tangy, spicy and simply divine to taste. This dish made from mango and coconut with a dash of jaggery, makes it super high in calories so weight watchers beware.

But It holds a special place in my heart cause my grandmother used to make it for me. Though the reciepe was passed down from my grandma to mum somehow the way she made it and how mom makes it are different yet delicious in their own ways. Perhaps it the love that one puts in to make the dish that makes it taste different or its the technique….

Coconut-1 cup heaped

Red chillies-3-4
