Kedah Perlis MFF - Mango Kerabu (Kerabu Pelam)

This is one dish from Nothern part of Malaysia caught my eyes for this month's Malaysian Food Fest - Kedah & Perlis
Never know any of their dish, I just followed what others made and this is one of my choice that finally I could make time to prepare

It's very similar to my favorite Thai mango salad
I didn't put cut red bird's eye chilli cos my mum can't take too spicy and I don't mind not having it in this dish, either
I didn't put crushed peanuts cos we don't really fancy having it in this salad

Sour, sweet, so refreshing! Best eaten chilled and after keeping it at least an hour in the fridge to let the dressing absorps well

Recipe from Phong Hong with some modification I made

What you need:

2 young mangoes, peeled and grated
10 cherry tomatoes, halved
5 shallots, thinly sliced
2 red bird's eye chillis - chopped (I didn't use)
2 tbsp dried prawns, soaked, drained and fry til crisp and golden in color

juice from 3 large limes
2 tbsp fish sauce
1 tbsp plum sauce
5 tbsp light brown sugar (I added)
1 shallot, thinly sliced

Garnish: crushed peanuts (I didn't use)
  1. In a bowl mix all dressing ingredients, set aside
  2. In a large bowl, mix all salad ingredients 
  3. Pour dressing over the salad
  4. Keep in an air tight container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour
  5. Serve chilled

I am submitting this to MFF Kedah Perlis Month hosted by Table for 2...or more
