Let me first tell you that this is not the authentic recipe of "Ambe Upkari" which we originally prepare in India. This dish is prepared with very small mangoes, which we call it as "gonto ambo" ( I am not sure what those are called in kannada or english). When I saw mangoes this season the very thought of "ambe upkari" made me feel I need to prepare it. So I went ahead with mangoes which I found here. This did satisfy my craving but I love the original recipe of this.

During July and August New India Bazar had lots of fresh mangoes. Those were so rich and tasty. We have hogged quite a few. I also prepared some of the authentic dishes. Ambe Rasayana or Ambe Hashale is one among them. Ambo in konkani is mango. Rasayana is made with mangoes, coconut milk and jaggery. Of course high in calories ! Since mangoes are not available widely round the year I did prepare this. I love to have these with puris. But I had to stop myself from making puris which will simply add some more calories :-). We just had this hashale (this is how we call it at home) as a dessert.
