No prizes for guessing from where I got this recipe from.For those who came in late,this one’s from my collection of Vanitha magazine recipes[do I hear any yawns?].Very similar to the Konkani curry Anvas-Ambya sassam[pineapple-mango curry],this one’s a great accompaniment with rice along with some spicy curry or Sambhar.
