With the onset of monsoon here in Vizag, its been a while since we have eaten ripe mangoes. Mango season is almost through with very few varieties available in the market. I bought a few mangoes (banganpalli variety) and prepared mango salsa. It would take another 8-9 months before I eat a ripe mango, so mango salsa it was with corn chips.
A typical summer fare, this mango salsa had a sweet-tangy taste with capsicum providing the crunch and mild spice. For a hotter salsa, add a chopped green chilli. Serve with grilled chicken or fish and you have winning combination.
