''AMMBE SASAM'' is extremely popular konkani recipe made with mangoes in coconut gravy with a touch of sweet and mild spicy flavour. Infact this dish is prepared in most of our konkani wedding. I make it every time whenever I get the fruit available. If mangoes are not available, then it can replaced by grapes or pineapple or desseed orange too. If ur looking for something new and different, do try this konkani sasam and make ur lunch tasty :) 


2 Ripe Fresh mangoes.

2 Cubes of Jaggery.( according to ur taste)

3/4 Cup Grated coconut.

2 Red chilli.

Pinch of turmeric powder.

Pinch of Salt.


1 tbsp Coconut oil.

1 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp Jeera.

1 sprig of Curry leaves.


Peel the mangoes and squeeze the whole fruit with hands till it forms into thick juicy and mushy. Drop it along with mango seed into the bowl. Meanwhile grind coconut with red chilli, turmeric pd and jaggery to a coarse paste adding very little water. Add the coconut mixture into mashed mangoes. Add salt according to ur taste. Heat 1 tbsp of coconut oil followed by mustard seeds, jeera and curry leaves. Add the tempering to the sasam. Serve.
