Amba Sorisha Khatta ( A sweet sour Mango relish from Odisha )

Cooking time required: 20-25 mins


  • 1 Large green mango (kancha amba)
  • 2 sprigs of curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/5 tsp turmeric powder 
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds 
  • 2 tsp mustard seeds ( use half the quantity if you are not used to the pungency 
  • 2 tsp oil ( 2 tsp)
  • jaggery / sugar as per taste ( also depends on the sourness of the mango )
  • 1/2 tsp pancha-phutana
  • 1/4 tsp roasted cumin-chilli powder (jeera-lanka gunda)
  • salt to taste

Preparation: Grind the mustard and cumin seeds into a fine paste.

Peel and cut the mango into long pieces.

Cooking: Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan, add the pancha-phutana and curry leaves. Stir for about 30 secs. Add the mango pieces and stir fry till soft.

Add the mustard-cumin paste along with 3-4 cups water. Add chilli powder, turmeric and salt. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer.

When the water reduces to 2/3rd add sugar and boil for 3-4 mins. Sprinkle jeera-lanka powder and remove from fire.

Serve with non-veg curry or dalma rice.

Note: I usually prepare it with Mansa jholo/Maccha jholo.But it tastes equally good when had with arwa chawal & dalma.
