Amba (Pickled Mango Sauce)
Rating: Unrated
New!
A blend of unripe green mango, white vinegar, and spices like fenugreek, cumin, and tart sumac punches up this sour condiment. Some versions of amba are fully pureed, but this recipe retains chunks of just-tender mango to give the sauce luscious body and bite. Try amba as a condiment for roasted meats, or do as Lucy Simon does and mix it with labneh for a fast-fix dip.
