Bites On The Fly

As the days get more hectic we find ourselves spending little or less time in the kitchen and opting for quick and easy (and sometimes unhealthy) ways of eating. Vashti Woman presents some fast and healthy cooking mantras for today’s enterprising ladies

Crunchy Mango


2 big mangoes peeled, pitted and diced
1 small cucumber peeled and diced
2 green chillies finely chopped
2 tbsp. chillie garlic sauce
2 tsp. finely chopped coriander
1/2 tbsp. lime juice
1/4 tsp. pepper powder
Salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon roasted sesame seeds for garnish.



1, Stir together chopped mango, cucumber, chillies and coriander in a bowl.

2, Season with chillie garlic sauce, lime juice, salt, pepper.

3, Refrigerate for at least 1 to 11/2 hour before serving in order to allow a nice blend of all flavours.

4, Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and serve.

Use firm varieties of mango for making salsa.

In India, Polly Mango (or Tottapuri as they are called in Hindi)—when nearly ripe—make the best salsa.

Alphonso or other sweet and soft varieties are better used for desserts.
