Thai Mango salad..!!

This is my most favourite salad ever, as i am big mango fruit lover and this salad give amazing tangy, spicy and sweet taste to mango. I had this salad for the first time after coming to Singapore at Thai Express, and as long as i remember i never had Thai food back their in India because i never knew one can get Thai vegetarian food.  I just have one picture of salad so i thought to share this as i always take picture of my recipes irrespective of what i am making :D I am glad i tried this and we both loved it..!! Trust me this is the simplest, tastiest and perfect salad. Refreshing, colourful and light..!! So here is my recipe try it today and you will love  it..!


2 firm Thai raw mango grated (using medium to large grater)
1/4 cup dry shredded coconut (very fine one)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
3-4 spring onion sliced
handful of roasted peanuts chopped roughly (can use whole too) (preserve some for garnishing)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
1 fresh chopped red chilli (optional)
1 teaspoon chopped mint leaves (few for garnishing)


3 tablespoon soya sauce light
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoon pure honey
1-2 teaspoon Thai chilli sauce or dried chilli flakes (optional)


Place coconut in non stick frying pan and roast it till it get golden brown colour, without using oil just like stir frying for 2-3 minutes. Take it out and let it cool down before adding to salad. Mix together all the ingredient of salad dressing in a bowl. Check dressing before adding it should be more of sweet taste than spicy and sore so it will  give perfect taste when combined with raw mango (check Tips*). Now in one bowl you using for serving add grated mango, chopped coriander, basil, mint, shredded coconut, peanuts, red chillies if you using, and spring onion and toss nicely. Now add complete dressing and loss again. Garnish it with remaining peanuts and mint leaves.

Always do a taste-test. If u want to add salt here add soya sauce instead of salt and if you prefer it sweeter add more honey or sugar (honey works best if adding last moment), if its too salty or sweet  than add lime juice and if you want more spicy add Thai chilli sauce or chilli flakes.

Keep rocking and enjoy cooking with gangnam style... !!
