Mango Salsa

Mango Madness is right ... more like Mad that there aren't any mangoes yet! I guess according to the mangoes, summer hasn't truly begun (the weather begs to differ...!). I bought one mango, fully ripened at Rs. 20 (about $0.50), which is still a lot for a mango - just because I couldn't wait any longer. And I used it to make this mango salsa!!

So here goes a precious mango over to Arundati at Escapades for her WBB's Mango Madness. Hopefully, by the time the round-up happens, there'll be lots of mangoes in the market to use! WBB was originally started by Nandita at Saffron Trail.



Mango Salsa for Breakfast

For the Salsa:
1.5 cups ripe Mango, diced
1 red Onion, chopped
1 Cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1/4 cup fresh Cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Hot Sauce (I used Sriracha)
Salt and Pepper, to taste

For the Wrap:
3-4 Rotis/ Chapattis or Tortillas
3-4 Eggs, scrambled soft

Mix everything together for the salsa. Let it rest covered in the refrigerator for about 1/2 hour for the flavors to combine.

To assemble, just lay some eggs in the middle of a tortilla. Cover with mango salsa. Enjoy.

Didn't realize that mango salsa would taste good with eggs - it does! The only thing I would change next time is to dice the mango and the cucumber a little smaller.

That bowl of salsa looks tempting Arundathi! My parents came here a week back and were also complaining abt the lack of mangoes in the market. But my uncle emailed us just last night saying that Hyderabad markets are now selling ripe mangoes for Rs.15 a dozen/kilo (??) I think :( I miss the summer 'mango diets' when I was there :(

Lovely salsa.
Mangoes are a bit on the expensive side this year. Unseasonal rains spoiled the crop and hence the shortage of mangoes.

Jamie said...

Nice one Thanks! Here is info on the real salsa ;)On Friday evening Chennai swung to the beats of Latin music at the Salsa Concert. The Indian Council for Cultural relations and The Embassy of Columbia together organized a music concert by the band Chocquibtown as part of the Second Colombian Cultural Week in India. Chocquibtown has been nominated for the Grammy Award in the category of Best Latin American Band in 2009.The band was great and had the audience dancing and swaying to the music almost right from the beginning of the performance. I was there and had a brilliant time! If you feel you missed out on this one.. then you may read HERE about the show for a better insight. Have fun !
