Unripe Mango in Spicy Light Soya Sauce Recipe


This is another dish that I always crave to have with rice.  LOL! Alright, ladies, don't laugh lah, guys also have cravings.....but most of the time the 'wrong' type of 'craving' not the pregnant type of craving. ha ha ha!
Mango goes along very well with rojak sauce but this is a shortcut way to do it. The simple Unripe Mango Salad in Spicy Light Soya sauce never fails to make me eat more rice. Peteformation need to put on weight!

I used to have this type of mango tree in my hometown house garden. It will bear fruits all year round and most of the time we will give them away. Unfortunately, my dad chopped it down when some of the branches starts to rot. Most of our neighbours would plant the mango seeds after they ate them, so whenever I pass by my old house nowadays, I could see the offsprings mango plants of our original mango tree lining the road there.

Ingredients
Mango, 1 big unripe, cut into small strips
Light soya sauce, enough to cover 2/3 of the mango
Sugar, to taste
Chili padi (bird eye chilli), 5 pcs, chopped finely

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until all the sugar dissolves. Chill the mango with spicy light soya sauce in the fridge before consuming.

PS : The light soya sauce required is only 2/3 to cover the mango because the saltiness of the sauce would cause the water in the mango cells to flow out through osmosis process into the sauce. After a short while, you will see that the sauce covering the mango.

Ate my mango spicy light soya sauce, Sambal Sotong Kembang, prawn fritters and stir fried vegetable with rice!

yes..yes ..yes...i used to makan these . Only difference is instead of chopping it fine, i cut it in pieces and makan with the sauce.

My sauce is dark soya sauce+sugar+cili. So it's thicker.
