Mangoes grow prolifically in South-East Asia and you’ll find versions of this street snack served wherever you go. Small, firm, under-ripe mangoes are typically used for this dish, their sweet-sour flavour accentuated by the sweet-salty condiment. This snack is perfect with a glass of mango cordial.
