ABOUT Aambya Kol/ Mango Kol RECIPE

This super easy traditional Saraswat recipe is a novel way to use mangoes. The delicately flavoured preparation has an amazing balance of sweet, tangy, spicy flavours. The natural sugars in the fruit combine with the jaggery to create a syrupy, deep, nectar like broth.
