Chili Mango

If you love sweet and sour dishes and also love to cook with ripe mangoes, then go for this Chinese sweet and sour dish, Chili Mango. It has the balanced sweet and sour taste, once the dish has cooled down a bit and the flavors have settled in. This will be a good side dish along with chinese fried rice or noodles. But then i just ate the chili mango and didn't need anything to go along with it. Try it and you might also like it.


Ingredients

2 big - Ripe & firm mangoes, cut to small pieces
1 medium size - Onion, chopped
1 - Capsicum, chopped
1 - Green chili, chopped
1 tsp - Finely grated ginger
1 tsp - Finely grated garlic
1/4 tsp - Red chili powder
3 tsp - Red chili sauce
3 tsp - Tomato sauce
3 tsp - Soya sauce
1.5 tsp - Vinegar
1.5 tsp - Cornflour

Garnishing

1 stalk - Greens of the spring onion, chopped finely

Method

1 ) Mix and combine the sauces - Red chili sauce, tomato sauce and soya sauce in a bowl. Then in another bowl mix and combine cornflour, vinegar and 2 to 3 tbsps of water.

2 ) Heat 2 to 3 tbsp butter in a pan, add onion and fry till it turns pink in color in medium heat. Then add ginger, garlic and green chili. Fry for a minute then add capsicum and fry till capsicum is fried lightly and still crisp.Add chili powder, lower the heat and then add the mixed sauces and stir in well with the ingredients in the pan. Then add the cornflour mixture, salt to taste, stir and mix well

3 ) Add mango pieces, mix well and cook on very low heat for a minute. Let the mango not get over cooked. Now when still hot i was not so keen on the taste, but when it cooled down a bit and flavors got balanced, it really tasted good. Serve into a serving bowl and garnish with spring onion.



Serve as a side dish with chinese fried rice or noodles.
