A Konkani delight, the Pineapple, Mango and Grape Sasam or Avnas Ambya Sasam is a cold preparation. Sweet and piquant at the same time it is traditionally served at all Konkani weddings. I was fortunate to find mangoes during this season and with pineapple and grapes available a plenty seized the opportunity to make this delicious dish.
- One cup Pineapple pieces
- One cup Mango pieces
- 15 grapes
- 1/2 of a small coconut grated
- 2 roasted red chillies
- 1/2 tsp mustard
- Jaggery as per requirement
Chop the pineapple into bite sized pieces. Boil them in salted water till they are cooked. Allow to cool thoroughly. Refrigerate. Chop the mango too into the same sized pieces as the pineapple. Add required amount of jaggery and salt. Mix well. Refrigerate along with the grapes and pineapple. Grind the coconut, roasted red chillies and the mustard to a semi coarse paste. Tip it into the bowl containing the mixed fruits. Serve chilled.
