Mango spheres with chili salt is a delicious and easy to make appetizer. It is a great way to show off your culinary skills and impress your guests.

Ingredients

  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

Method

  1. In a blender, combine the mango, chili powder, salt, lime juice, sugar, and water. Blend until smooth.
  2. Pour the mixture into a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
  3. Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
  4. Using a melon baller or small spoon, scoop the mixture into small balls. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Potential changes & improvements

If you want a more intense chili flavor, you can increase the amount of chili powder. You can also add a pinch of cayenne pepper for an extra kick. If you don’t like mangoes, you can use another type of fruit such as pineapple or papaya. Just make sure that the fruit is ripe so that it is easy to blend.

What other food it works well with

Mango spheres with chili salt go well with other appetizers such as grilled shrimp or chicken skewers. They also make a great topping for salads or main courses such as fish or chicken.

Common Mistakes

One common mistake is to not cook the mango mixture long enough. The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. If it is too thin, it will not hold its shape when scooped into balls. Another mistake is to use unripe fruit. Ripe fruit is easier to blend and will result in a smoother texture.
