Salads

Raw mango salad

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.

Ingredients:

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

Dressing:

Soy sauce– 2 Tbsp

Sugar-1 ½ Tbsp

Chilli garlic sauce- 1 Tbsp

Preparation:

In a bowl mix soy sauce, sugar, chilli garlic sauce and keep aside. Mix chopped raw mango, bean sprouts, peanuts and spring onions in another bowl.

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.
