They are so good to eat by themselves and I don’t feel like using them up in our cooking.But our mango-shopping last time gave us a few not-so sweet mangoes which were perfect to use up in cooking.I decided to make the most of it by making some Aamras and Ambya ambat.Ambat is a sweet dish made using ripe fruits and combining them with a dal and coconut mix.I usually make ambat using bananas[nendrapazham].I wanted to make this one as it is one of my dad’s favourites.He celebrated his birthday few days back and this one’s for him:).

Ripe Mango – 1,chopped into cubes
Channa dal – 100 gms,about ½ a cup
