This dish is  normally made  with the succulent variety of mangoes available during the season.The state of Goa can boast of the best quality of mangoes flooding the markets in India.The original recipe of ripe mango sasav is made with lots of coconut .We make it very often but being health conscious we cook a simpler and tasty version of this recipe without coconut too. The sweetness and the tanginess of the mangoes is retained in the dish.



  1. Peel off the mango skin . Squeeze them to obtain juicy pulp. Leave some pulp on the kernel.
  2. Heat oil, add asafoetida, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Allow the mustard seeds to crackle.
  3. Add urid  dal and methi seeds.
  4. Add chilli powder, water and boil.
  5. Add the mangoes and cook for 5 to 6 minutes.
