In a tempering pan, heat oil, add mustard and chilli flakes. When starts spluttering, add curry leaves, switch of the stove and season the tambuli. Serve as a side dish with cooked rice.

It’s a summer specialty in Mangalore region, almost in every house. It is an appetizer because of the tanginess of mango. There will be need for extra rice than usual!
