ABOUT Dry mango rai RECIPE

Ambula or dried mango pieces seasoned with salt are are enough to tickle our palate and be the queen of our kitchen pantry.“Ambula” are staple ingredient in any Odia kitchen. A lot of dishes including fish items require a simple addition of “Ambula” to give it a tangy flavour. This humble ambula marinated with sea salt and chilly powder is my all time favorite pickle indulgent.
