Notes

Green (unripe) mangoes are popular in South-East Asian salads. They have a green skin and firm yellow flesh that adds a refreshing, slightly sour flavour.Popular in Indonesian and Malaysian cooking, sambal oelek is a spicy paste made with red chillies, salt, vinegar and sometimes other spices. It is available in the Asian section of most supermarkets or from Asian grocery stores.
