Mango, pomegranate and tender coconut salsa.
Mango is one of the most favourite fruit of the world. Its called king of the fruits because of it’s superbly delicious taste. And mango season is at its peak this time. I have already made some yummy dishes with it. Mango litchi fudge or burfi. Eggless no bake no gelatin cheesecake. Paneer or cottage cheese and mango smoothie. Mango kalakand. Mango sandesh. Mango banana smoothie. Eggless mango mug cake. Mango coconut and flax seed smoothie
Its Monday again. Our bloghop day. And this week #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is #CWFB means cook with fellow blogger. Yes we have to choose a recipe from each other’s blog. This recipe is from my fellow blogger and friend Alka’s blog. She has an excellent blog. Alka is a Blogger Photographer and Food Stylist. She always amazed us by her photography skill. Visit her blog Culinaryxpress for many amazing recipes and excellent pictures. All the pictures are really a visual treat.
At first I thought of a baking recipe from her blog. But I am out of town this time. So its impossible to bake anything. Alka suggested me to make this easy no cook but delicious Mango pomegranate and tender coconut salsa. Thanks Alka.
Mango is my favourite fruit. And I have used it in many of my dishes. But all are sweet. In this recipe sweet pulpy mango, Pomegranate, cucumber and tender coconut mixed with salt, green chilli and pepper. Sounds interesting isn’t it? Believe me taste is too good. Pomegranate, cucumber and onion gives a crunchy texture to this salsa. Love this sweet, salty and spicy mixed taste.
According to Alka “Salsas always go well with a platter of Chips, Tortillas and even with Papads khakras, which are a slightly healthier version when compared to chips. I prefer the Mango salsa the most for it’s perfect burst of flavors with the sweetness of mangoes which is balanced with the acidity from lemon and the heat from the chillies but you can make various salsa varieties with fruits and vegetables during their respective seasons”.
I am in Kolkata now so I have used Himsagar mango. Thanks to bro Nilotpol Ganguli for these sweet juicy flavourful mangoes. A superbly delicious gift. I love the taste of this variety. Its a famous variety in West Bengal.
