Cilantro Saru/ Kothambari Palle Saru

Kothambari Pallo is cilantro. I had a whole bunch in fridge and my mom reminded me of kothambari palle saru, chuntey and tambli. The first thing I prepared was saru. Came out perfect and both of us liked it :). A quick recipe during busy days !

Mango Sweet Curry/ Ambe Sasam

Its been exactly two months I haven't updated my blog. I was referring to many other blogs especially Vah chef for everyday cooking. We tried different recipes both veg and non-veg and to our surprise every dish we prepared was awesome ! Now I am back here again to update authentic konkani recipes. There are so many recipes from my good old childhood days which I have forgotten and I felt the blogging should go on. It helps me maintain all the recipes at one place. 

We bought few mangoes last week which were very sour to eat. The best was to prepare ambe sasam or ambe upkari. Both are my favorites. I prioritized sasam as it is very easy and simple to prepare. Ambe upkari is surely on my cards this week. This sasam is usually prepared during special occasions or even festive days as it does not contain garlic and onion. This is typically prepared with a combination of ambe-avanasa (ambo = mango, avanasa = pineapple). Few people also add few grapes. I did not have pineapple and I prepared it with only mangoes.
