Yep, this is the way my mamamma used to make it!! But, must admit, of all the mango preparations, this one was my least favorite. My fave is ambe sasama, closely followed by ambe gozzu. I remember mamamma making another mango dish, but I forget. Made ambe sasama with my mamamma's recipe this mango season - loved it!!

Hi Shilpa, V make ambe-upkari this way :Peel the skin and squeeze all the pulp from the skin in a pan with clean water and clean hands. Boil the gonthambos( mangoes) in this water(throw away the peels) along with some Green Chillies and Salt, for about 5-10 mins till mangoes bcome soft. Add Jaggery and Maida (1 tbsp) / cooked Sabudana (sago)( 1 tbsp) and keep stirring till the randai reaches boiling point...Season with mustard seeds, 1 Red chiili and 1tsp udid dal . The whole mix shud b tikkse-mittse(SLURP-SLURP) !!!!!!!! I will b making it tonite for dinner along wid dalitoy and batate-songg... U r welcome....

I love this Ambe upkari, the only thing that we used to add to this gravy is a spoon of maida to make the gravy a bit thick it tastes really good maybe you could try it next time when you prepare it again.

Shilpa: This is simply too much! One of my favorites. Even though we used to make this in mumbai, the huMaNe in kumta and honnavar had a distinctive taste. My aunts were surprised I'd take it in a bowl and eat it as dessert! Yumm! :-)) Hey, see this pic of a mango seller in the Kumta market and a bystander demonstrating how to eat a 'gHonTa', (in this case, a manik-bhat).

I am a 63 y/o American ex-wife of a KSB. We lived with my in-laws in Mumbai for awhile. My beloved Amma taught me all of the incredible dishes that she learned growing up in Mangalore. I am now completely bedfast and terribly terribly 'homesick' and someone directed me to this site. The first thing to pop up is ambe upkari, which Amma always made for me especially. I haven't seen any 'ghonta' mangoes but I hadn't thought to look either. Now I'm totally jazzed. Thank you so many more times than I can express! (p.s. we didn't use urid dal, either)

Wow, look at that color. What a great chutney, refreshing I bet.
