Raw Mango Sambar Recipe - Easy Sambar Recipe

Mango Sambar Recipe
Raw Mango Sambar(Maanga Sambar) is one of the most flavourful sambar recipes...Whenever I get raw mango either I use it for mango pachadi or make this sambar or very rarely use it for fish kuzhambu. Raw mango takes sambar to a whole new level with its flavour....tastes best the next day too.

Whenever I make mango sambar the first thing that comes to my mind is the way my cousin brother eats this sambar.....During our childhood days I have seen him reserve all the mango part seperated from sambar then finally add sugar to it and and enjoy...I havent tried it so far but then memories haunt me often.

My Notes:

  • Tempering at the last stage always retains the flavour.
  • Take care not to much the mango, keep an eye while it gets cooked.
  • Tamarind used should be very less for this sambar as mango itself is very tangy.
  • Smells and tastes good for 2 days if refrigerated. But heat it once inbetween cool down and then refrigerate.
  • Switch off according to the thick consistency you prefer.But it hickens with time so switch off accordingly.
