To make the spice mix, use a spice grinder or a small coffee grinder to blitz all the spices together (no need to roast any of them).
To make the sauce, place the flesh of the mango in a blender along with the juice from the lemon and blitz until smooth.
Heat the oil in a saucepan and gradually add the amba spice mix, cooking until very fragrant and a little bubbly.
Add the mango-lemon purée and whisk till combined, then return to a boil. Stir in the salt, then remove from the heat and cool.
Transfer to an airtight container, or a jar, and keep in the fridge. It will last for up to two weeks.
