After experiencing a traditional mango sauce called amba for the first time in Israel, Trader Joe's began working with its Indian food supplier to introduce the Middle Eastern condiment to North America. True to its name, Trader Joe's Amba Mango Sauce is made with a base of fermented mangoes, which are combined with garlic, salt, turmeric, paprika and Indian spices. The finished product is said to be thick yet smooth, with a flavor that's savory and packs some heat.
For the utmost convenience, Trader Joe's opted to package this mango condiment in a squeezable stand-up pouch with a resealable cap. When it comes to enjoying the sauce, Trader Joe's recommends pairing it with meat or vegetables, or using it to dress salads.
