This is usually the last fruit of the season. Its called ‘Sakkare buthi’ in kannada, which means ‘Bundle of Sugar’. These are small mangoes. You can hold almost 5 to 6 of them in your hands. They are sweet with just a hint of tang. They are very fibrous compared to other mangoes.
This is an amazing, tangy and sweet dish. Just thinking about this dish makes me salivate.

Peel the mangoes. In a pan place oil. Add mustard seeds and let them crackle. Add asafoetida, curry leaves and green chillies and saute for a minute.
To this add the peeled mangoes and saute till its a little gold on some parts . To this add a cup of water, salt and cover it. Let it boil. Once the water starts evaporating, add an other cup of water and boil again. At the end of it you should be left with nice thick sauce.
Depending on the tanginess of the mangoes, add the lemon juice.
