Mango Salsa

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.

  11. Hi Sailaja,
    I have read several posts of yours and enjoy reading your comments on the overall process – pics are always beautiful too. Really admire the variety in your cuisine – truly seems to be a passion for you.

    I am from Andhra as well, spent 12 years in Vizag actually during school/college years – so a lot of your posts make me really nostalgic especially given.

    Take Care,
