I am always inspired by dishes that I eat at a restaurant and have the habit of mimicking it at home, of course with a little help from search engines from the web. This is one such recipe which I absolutely fell in love with when I had it in a Thai restaurant. It takes less ingredients and time to prepare this salad.
Raw mango -¼ of a mango chopped into matchstick size pieces (choose a mango which is a bit firm)
Bean sprouts- 1 handful
Lettuce- 4 leaves
Peanuts/groundnuts- 1 handful roasted and ground coarsely
Shredded dry coconut- 1 handful roasted lightly (optional)
Spring onions- small bunch, chopped
Coriander/cilantro– ¼ finely chopped
Fresh basil- ½ Tbsp
Soy sauce– 2 Tbsp
Sugar-1 ½ Tbsp
Chilli garlic sauce- 1 Tbsp
Take a lettuce leaf. Add the mango mixture in the centre and sprinkle the dressing as per your need.
Garnish with cilantro, basil leaves and roasted coconut. Now wrap the lettuce so that the mixture do not fall from any openings and enjoy!. We can make four lettuce wraps with the above given measurements
Optional: If you do not have lettuce, you can have the salad by itself.
