Mango Salsa

Mango salsa. A perfect summer recipe can be made with handful of ingredients and in a few minutes. This spicy tangy lipsmacking mango salsa made with raw mango, cucumber, green chilli, ginger, tomato, watermelon, mint, cilantro or coriander leaves and some spices.

My last post was a Summer cooler. Now sharing one more summer special recipe. Try and please drop a comment about how you like it. 

Sweetness of watermelon enhance the taste of this spicy salsa. You can use any sweet fruit like ripe mango, grapes, pineapple instead of watermelon. You can also use little more lemon juice if you want your salsa more tangy. If you like your salsa more spicy add 1-2 more green chilli or 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder more.

Ingredients used to make this delicious salsa. 

Raw mango/green mango or kchcha aam – Main ingredient is raw or green mango. Sour taste and a sharp flavour made this salsa lipsmackingly delicious. 

Cucumber or kheera – Cucumber will give a refreshing taste to your salsa. But check the cucumber pieces before adding in the salsa. Cucumber shouldn’t be bitter. 

Watermelon or tarbuj – Watermelon will give a mildly sweet taste. It will balance the spiciness of the salsa. 

Ginger or adrak – Fresh ginger used for a spicy taste and aroma.

Onion or pyaj – Used one finely chopped red onion to enhance the taste and for flavour and crunch.

Green chilli or hari mirch – Green chilli will give your salsa a spicy kick. I have used only one but you can use more if you want your salsa more spicy. 

Tomato or tamatar – Used tomato for a sweet and sour taste. Always use firm tomato. 

Cilantro/coriander leaves or dhania – Handful finely chopped cilantro used for a refreshing flavour. 

Mint leaves or pudina – Mint leaves or pudina will give a cool fresh flavour. 

Lemon juice or nimbu ras – One teaspoon lemon juice used for a refreshing flavour and tangy taste. 

Pink or black salt/kala namak – Used pink salt for taste. If you don’t have pink or black salt, then you can use any salt. Use whatever you have. 

Black pepper or kali mirch powder – Black pepper or kali mirch powder used for a mildly spicy flavour. You can use little more to make your salsa spicy. You can also use freshly crushed black pepper if you want.

You can add any fruit in this salsa to get the mildly sweet taste.  And as I mentioned above if you like your salsa more spicy add more green chilli and black pepper powder.

Mango Pomegranate And Tender Coconut Salsa 

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.

Recipe 


Mangoes –  2 large ripe , peeled, diced

Cucumber –  1 diced

Pomegranate seeds –  ¼ cup

Tender coconut –  1,  flesh cut in one inch strips

Red onion –  ½ cup , chopped
Coriander leaves –   ¼ cup chopped

chilli –  1 finely chopped

Lime –  1

salt and Black pepper to taste

Method 



Dice the mangoes and cucumber and keep aside. Deseed the pomegranate and take out the flesh of the tender coconut.

In a large bowl, combine diced mangoes, cucumber, chopped onions,pomegranate seeds, tender coconut, chopped chilies and chopped coriander leaves.Add lime juice and salt to taste. Mix well.

Let this sit for 10-15 mins for flavors to mingle together.Serve it with papads or chips.

For outdoors, scoop them in paper cups and serve it with scoop type chips or papas.

Enjoy the sweet, salty and spicy mixed summer fruit salsa.  Perfect for this hot weather.
