Tips and Techniques

  • Spice level: To make it spicier, add more chopped chilies.
  • Fish sauce substitution: If you don't have fish sauce (patis), add a bit of extra salt.
  • Vinegar: There are so many different brands of vinegar available at the groceries. Taste the vinegar first before adding it to the mixture in order to make the necessary adjustments.
  • Pickling time: Let the mango slices sit in the pickling juice for at least one hour before serving. This allows time for the mangoes to fully absorb the flavors.
