mango sidedish

This is a very common sweet n sour dish and is prepared very frequently in most konkani households throughout the mango season :-)


  • Juicy mangoes - 4
  • Grated jaggery - 4 tablespoons
  • Oil - 1 teaspoon
  • Mustard - half teaspoon
  • Red chillies - 2
  • Green chillies - 2
  • Udad daal - half teaspoon
  • Bay leaves - a strand
  • Salt to taste


  • Peel the mangoes and squeeze the pulp. ( Do not throw away the seed )
  • To this add the grated jaggery and mix well. If the mangoes are sour, add more jaggery.
  • Heat some oil in a pan.
  • Add the mustard. After it sputters, add the udad daal, red chillies, green chillies and bay leaves.
  • To this add the mango pulp (along with the seed), little water to dilute and salt to taste.
  • Bring this to boil.


  • Use mangoes that are not very sweet. This way these mangoes are put to a good use and the dish tastes sweet and sour.
