Mango salad recipe with step by step photos – a quick salad made with raw mangoes and chopped onions. This is a sour, tangy and spiced mango salad. ‘khatta’ or sour tasting mangoes are complementing the slight pungency & sweetness of the onions.

The spices like roasted cumin powder and chili powder also perk up the flavors. Some sugar is also added to balance the tartness of the mangoes. So thus the salad is tangy, spiced with a sweet mild taste. Also this salad could be made in less than 20 mins.

Usually I buy unripe mangoes to make Mango pickle. apart from pickling them, I also make mango rice, aam panna, Aam ka murabba. I also add them to dals or curries on occasions. Raw mangoes are used as a souring agent. Example in the Goan cuisine dried mango slices and even fresh unripe mangoes are added to various curries to give a sour taste.

This raw mango salad is a Gujarati recipe and given by one of my Gujarati friend. This is how the recipe is made in their home since ages. The recipe is simple yet flavorful and goes very well as a side dish with dal-rice, pulao, khichdi and veg pulao. You can also have this kachumber with plain parathas or aloo paratha.
