When the 'King of fruits' -Mangoes are in season ..its like Mangoes every where and in every thing.I have already posted a Mango Lassi and a Mango Cake Roll long time back.
This time I was lucky enough to get both the raw and ripe ones from India grown from Umma's garden.My hubby when returning from India after a two weeks trip and also my Dad came here for a two weeks stay,both of them came with loads of Mangoes.Umma was also very happy she could sent them because such things could not be sent with other relatives due to the weight.And getting something from our own garden is totally different from what we purchase(now a days mainly health wise).However, my little boy just don't like eating this fruit...his selecting and eating habits sometimes make me go crazy hehe....
Today's recipe is a very simple Salsa,a mixing of a few ingredients to elevate the delicious taste of the Mangoes.Umma used to make a similar thing long back for lunch like when it was Mango season she takes a medium ripe Mango, mash it along with slit Chillies ,salt and a little water.It tasted real awesome.Now on to the Mango Salsa
Mango (ripe and firm ) 1 big (peeled and cubed)
Green Chillies 1-2 (finely chopped)
Onion 3 tbsp(finely chopped)
Pepper powder 1/4 tsp
Lime juice 1 tsp
Coriander leaves chopped 3 tbsp
Mint leaves a few (optional)
Salt to taste
-In a bowl add all the ingredients,combine well and refrigerate for sometime.Serve.
