 Bitter gourd and ripe mango !!!! Feeling odd right ?? But trust me ,its a traditional GSB recipe ,making them  a superb heavenly pair.  The two totally contradictory taste blend with the coconut gravy  so nicely which in turn make a wonderful side dish for rice.

  • Ripe mangoes  – 2
  • Coconut grated  – 3/4 cup
  • Fried dried red chillies  – 4

  2. Now cook the bitter gourd and the ripe mango pieces together adding sufficient salt and the grated jaggery.
  3. Fry urad dal in a little oil till they turn reddish.
  4. Grind them along with the coconut and fried red chillies to a smooth paste.
