Mango Pachadi (Sweet and Sour Salad)

Mango Pachadi (Sweet and Sour Salad)

I must say, this is an amazing dish. It is so delicious, so easy to make, and just goes with anything as a side dish. Actually, it is great even by itself as a snack, even cold or at room temperature. It is healthy (especially if you use very little sugar, or no sugar at all if the mangoes are semi-ripe). Try it, you will not be disappointed.
