My Mum used to cook raw mango using this method. In Sri Lanka mango is as popular as apple in England with lots of varieties too. Now that I am in the UK, I created my own version of this recipe using green apples. It tastes better if you can make it a day in advance. Try with plain boiled rice, my chicken curry, and gotukola. I’m sure you will love it!
