Mango Sasav, Mango in Coconut Curry

Mango in Coconut Curry is a sweet, sour and spicy dish that is popular in the Konkan region. Peeled, whole mangoes are cooked with jaggery and perked up with a mildly-spiced coconut paste. The tempering of mustard seeds and red chillies is very important to get the characteristic taste of this dish.

In regions like Mangalore, this dish is called Mango Sasav, where sasav means mustard. That tells how important the little seed is, to get the authentic flavour and aroma of this dish.

Serve with rotis and rice .
