We Indians love making the most of the seasonal fruits, right? At some point or the other, we all agree that it is a luxury to relish seasonal fruits such as litchi, watermelon, mangoes which arrive just once in a year. I make most of these fruits by preparing Litchi Lemonade and other coolers. But when it comes to the king of fruits there are so many dishes, sides, and accompaniments one can craft from it! Recently, I made Aam Panna and Kairi aur Mirch ki Sabzi. While preparing those, I also had an idea of preparing a tangy, spicy sauce using mangoes. Thus, the recipe for Mango Chilli Sauce instantly got brainstormed!
Mango Chilli Sauce combines the best of two flavours. It is sweet and spicy which makes it an interesting combination that one cannot resist at all. Along with chillies and mangoes, I have used olive oil to saute the ingredients so that Mango Chilli Sauce gets an authentic flavour of olive oil. Plus a tad of sugar, lemon juice, bay leaves, salt and garlic lend a nice retouch to this flavourful Mango Chilli Sauce. Use Mango Chilli Sauce for making a tasty sandwich or use it as a spread, here’s an ultra simple recipe for making Mango Chilli Sauce right at your home.
I usually combine it with some mayonnaise and use as a spread for my sandwiches, add it my salads for that extra kick and use as dipping sauce with appetisers.
