How to make Ambyache Saar (Mango Broth)

  1. Wash all the mangoes, green chilies and the fresh coriander leaves separately. Take both varieties of mangoes and slice them neatly.
  2. We only need to use the fleshy seed or the 'koy' as we call it in Marathi, the rest of the flesh of the raw mangoes can be used to make pickle, panna or chutney and the ripe mango flesh can be just eaten by itself or used for salad,shakes or other desserts.
  3. In a non stick pan / kadhai, heat the ghee. Add the cumin seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves and the green chilies.
  4. As these are start to sizzle, add the 4 mango seeds. Stir and mix gently with the sizzling ingredients in the pan.
  5. Now add the water (first add 3 cups and later you could add another cup depending on the desired thin /light consistency you want for your saar/broth) , the jaggery / sugar and the salt and cover and simmer for about 7-8 minutes on slow heat after the first boil.
  6. Once the fleshy seeds are soft and cooked take the pan off heat.
  7. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves and the grated fresh coconut. Serve with a regular roti-sabzi-rice meal.

My Tip:

You can add a few strands of saffron (pre soaked in a little warm water for 5 minutes) for added flavour while boiling.
