Sweet & Spicy Mangoes Salad With Fried Bean Curd

I just love this sweet and spicy flavouring salad especially with mangoes. If I'm not mistaken, this is one of our local nyonya style salad which is also called as 'kerabu mangga'. Yes, very popular dish indeed! My mouth is salivating already! Let's go strait to the recipe, shall we?

Ingredients :

one whole mango (half ripe), grated
1 cucumber, grated
1 large onion, sliced
200gm jicama, grated
3 bird eye chilies, sliced
200gm Fried Bean curd, cut small
1 packet Japanese Dried Shrimp
some pamelo flesh (optional)
roasted crashed peanut (optional)

Seasoning :
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup fish sauce
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
*
Method :
*
- after cutting all the veggies and fruit, chilled them in refrigerator.
- at the time being, combine all the seasoning and mix well.

Mix all ingredients together, top with dried shrimp & roasted crashed peanut and serve immediately.
These dried shrimps can be taken directly even without cooking.

I can't wait to stuff my mouth full with these! Just another few more shots...... OK! DONE!
