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.

    Hi Sailu,
    It’s my first time here. You have such a good collection of recipes!
    Loved the first pic of the salsa. I too made this a few days back, the only difference being that I added corn.
    I will be visiting regularly to check out your fare.

    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.
    Do keep posting…
    Take Care,
