Kerabu Mangga (Mango Salad)


Kerabu mangga/mango salad is a refreshing punchy-crunchy dish. Easy to put together for there's no cooking involved. Just thinly slice up the ingredients and toss together. Also instead of roasting the nuts, save time by using the already roasted packet ones. Such a salad as you know or don't must be eaten possibly soon after making. Otherwise it loses the crunchiness and becomes soggy. Kerabu can be an appetizer for a full course meal but for normal meals, a lovely side dish for rice. In fact this salad is about all your need with rice for it is significantly appetizing. Don't believe me? Make, eat with rice and let me know yea!!


Ingredients
1 large unripe mango - remove skin and slice into thin long stripes
1 red chilli - sliced thinly
2 birds eye chillies - sliced thinly (optional)
4 shallots - sliced thinly
4-5 sprigs of mint leaves - shredded (or coriander leaves)
1/2 tbsp lime juice (depending on the sourness of the mango)
1/2 tbsp powder palm sugar 
1/2 cup roasted cashew nut or peanuts - coarsely pounded (I used cashew nuts)
Salt for taste

Method
Toss all ingredients together before serving.

  8. Wow very lovely and tangy mango salad, i have never added peanuts or cashews before to mango salad. Its a nice twist and makes it crunchy and yummy.

  9. Oh I heard, the ruling party won with only a slight margin & the opposition party is looking to take it to streets!! It is indeed 'demo crazy', rightfully put. As citizens, there is only so much we can do & leave the rest. I have visited Malaysia during my school time, have seen a mix of races living harmoniously. Hmm.. I hope things turn alright for you guys soon, Nava.

    About the salad: Gosh, very tempting - raw mango is one great ingredient. The pounded cashew/peanut on the salad is a nice idea to give the crunchy feel. Love it. Nice clicks too.
