This Indian version of raw mango salad is slightly similar to the Thai Green Mango Salad or Som Tum Mamuang, except it is completely vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and nuts free. This plant-based green mango salad recipe is delicious and healthy in different ways. In this post I have described the exact way of putting together this tangy unripe mango salad recipe.
Batata Vada is Indian style potato fritters with a spicy filling of garlic and peanuts. This is a Gujrati delicacy is perfect as an evening snack with chai or tea. Plus it is a great crowd-pleaser. Once prepped, fry it in a huge batch and serve immediately.
This Kancha Aamer Chutney (Chatni) or Green Mango Chutney is probably the best summer special chutney to go with simple and light summer dishes. Plus, it has absolutely zero oil, and by that, I mean no oil or butter in any form whatsoever! And….takes barely 10 minutes to get this ready. Oh! Did I tell you it practically needs only 3 ingredients and a Pressure Cooker (or Instant Pot)?
There is only one thing that makes me wait for summers and that is Mango. Green as well as ripened, both are awaited with abated breath in my household. First one to reach the markets is always the Green Mango which makes delicious chutneys and a special Bengali sour dal known as Toker Dal. The nomenclature here, need a little bit of explanation. ‘Tok‘ means sour in Bangla, hence, Toker Daal means sour dal. The sour taste essentially comes from the unripened tangy Green Mango. Among the various lentil recipes, this green mango recipe is a staple in every Bengali household during the summer months in India.
