Sansav is loved by every one from kids to elders to old.The Tangy ,spicy and sweet taste of the sansav makes every one lick their fingers. In Goa mostly Ambade sansav is included in the festival menu of Ganesh Chaturthi and Diwali.

 My Mom prepares the best sansav and its  my all time favourite.Being in Bangalore its was little difficult to find ambade,so today i tried to substitute ambade(hog plum) with pineapple. So lets begin with ananas sansav.

1 Small pineapple cleaned and cut unto cubes
1/2 small coconut scrapped
1/2 Tablespoon mustard seed
