buah bambangan

My blogger friend from Sabah was sending me this unique fruit, called ‘Bambangan’. The iban people in Sarawak called it – ” mawang”. Unfortunately this time I got the sour one.

Bambangan is a type of wild mango with brown skin and a somewhat pungent smell. This is not eaten fresh as a fruit but made into a pickle or cooked with fish for a distinctive flavour. Nevertheless, some iban people like to eat it as fruit.

Bambangan is one of the kadazan dusun people’s choices for a sour tang to their food. Sometimes, the mango is fried with onion and chilli and served as a side-dish or sambal. The Bambangan also can mixed with grated seeds to make the flavour more delicious!

You can get your Bambangan at “tamu” markets or street markets in Sabah. Don’t miss this speciality when you come to Sabah! [+ source: fascinating malaysia ]
