This mango salad brings together some of the most popular fresh flavours of India!
Though it’s true that many of the ingredients in the mango salad didn’t make their way to India until quite late, they are all very popular in Indian cooking now.
With this salad, I wanted to bring them all together. I think you will agree that this mango salad is perfect for the warmer Spring and Summer months. I like serving it at barbecues. There are so many interesting flavours and textures.
It goes well with other types of food too but I have yet to make an Indian dish which wasn’t the perfect companion for this fresh, bright, sweet and somewhat tangy salad.
I have used sesame oil which isn’t used in many Indian recipes though it is starting to be more popular in Indian cookery lately.
