Mango Salsa With Cilantro

This is my final recipe for this week BM. I am cooking from my cooking book collection and my combination for to day is mango and greens. greens I used in this recipe is fresh coriander leaves(cilantro) and spring onion greens. This salsa is a best combination with tortila chips, taco chips. I have adopted this recipe from the book Delicious dips by Diane Morgan in this book you can find some delicious dips (I have tried a few of the they came out so well) and also with few salsa recipes. pick a sweet mango means totapuri mango is best for this. means mango should not be too sour that should be sweet but not ripe. Instead of jalapeno chilli you can use any Indian variate chilli but jalapeno s will give a wonderful flavor. let's check how to make this salsa.
