Ambadyachi Uddamethi / Goan Hog Plum Curry

Ambadyachi Uddamethi or Goan Hog Plum Curry is a post which I intended to post during the shravan of 2016. But it got delayed due to some unexplainable reasons. I wanted to post this recipe in shravan month of 2017, but again it got postponed due to my travel and office work. Let me not be very late in posting this as this is the right time when hog plums are available in Goa and many other parts of our country.

Ambadyachi Uddamethi

Amdadyachi Uddamethi is a traditional Goan curry just like Amlechi Uddamethi and mooga gaathi. These dishes are normally prepared during the holy month of Shravan and Ganesh Chaturthi. These dishes are made without onion and garlic and are considered pure veg.

Ambadyachi Uddamethi

This dish can be served with rice just like varan. You can also make ambadyache raite with hog plums and serve it along with other traditional dishes. In my childhood I used to love ambade. Mom used to make the best ambadyachi uddamethi. I loved to suck the flesh from the hog plums. The thick inner core has to be discarded. Be careful while peeling the hog plums. Just peel the outer skin, else you will be removing the flesh from the hog plums and the curry will not be flavourful.

    Can I use any other vegetable instead of ambade? We do not get them where I live.
