It is raining mangoes every where , markets , malls and now blogs !!The weather forecast predicts there is going to be heavy rains of ….. you guessed MANGOES! and a bumper rain at the end of this month in Deepa’s blog.

I wanted to make some thing different with Mangoes this time . Heard of Mango salsa ? I vaguely remember having heard it on the TV show. So I started digging my diaries for the recipe. But no luck 😦 This was not going to stop me from making Salsa.

Then I googled, there I had a wide choice of recipes with the name of Mango Salsa. So this recipe did exist, I was not dreaming . After thoroughly scanning them I decided on this recipe here.


”It has garlic , and onions too oooohhh, omit omit or write optional” my hubby said. He could not imagine ripe mangoe’s sweet character being assasinated by the smelly onions and garlic too. Secretly even I felt the same πŸ™‚

But determined I was. I had no choice. The dead line was 20May 07. The count down timer was ticking on Deepa’s blog. I had to post some thing.

So I made the recipe, substituting the red pepper for green one and the scallion for red onion. Then I added mint too.

The recipes goes like this-


1 to 2 mangoes ripe mangoes updated (to yield at least 1 cup chopped mangoes)

1/4 cup finely chopped red onions

1/4 cup green pepper finely chopped

1 Tbsp jalapeno peppers ( I used green chilis)

1 Tbsp chopped cilantro (coriander leaves)

1 small clove garlic finely chopped

1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp extra virgin Β  oliveΒ  oil.

Few mint leaves finely chopped

METHOD-Lightly toss all the ingredients.Chill for at least 1 hour .Then serve with Tortilla chips. I served it with Khakra !

Don’t get scared to try it out . The salsa was too yummy. We polished it off in no time. In fact I plan to include it in an Indian meal too.
