Aamer Ambol...Thanks Gouri!!!
This evening I suddenly had an urge to eat Aamer Ambol. To tell you the truth I had never tasted this before in my life. You must be wondering how is it possible to miss something I had never done before; so was I!
Thanks to Gouri, a dear blogger, I made this tonight. I loved it! My husband said I should try and make Bengali dishes more often :)
Here is the original recipe by Gouri Guha.
The recipe called for Rosgulla syrup which i didn't have. So I just used 1 tsp of sugar instead. Its a simple recipe. Peel one green mango and cut them into pieces. Take 1 tsp of oil and add 1/2 red chili (I don't like my food too hot) and 1 tsp of mustard seeds. When it starts to splutter add mango pieces. Add 4 tbsp of water and cover to half cook. Then add a little salt and turmeric powder. cook until mangoes are just about done and add 1 tsp of sugar and a pinch of red chili powder. That's it!
I was very apprehensive in the beginning for I had never ever mixed red chili powder and sugar but Voila! the taste is soooo good!
Perhaps I will add another tsp of sugar next time and serve this as a side salad with wine.
Again, thanks to Gouri.
