- 450g green mango
- 220g castor sugar
- 1½ tsp salt
- Peel the mango and rinse well. Slice the mango flesh thickly. Place in a basin; add salt and toss well. Leave to marinate for 5-6 minutes. Rinse off the salt and drain well in a colander.
- Divide sugar into 2 portions. Put one portion of sugar on the base of a glass jar. Add half of the sliced mango pieces.
- Put in the other portion of sugar. Top up with remaining mango pieces. Close the jar lid and leave in the refrigerator for about 24 hours.
- Water will be drawn out from the mango the next day. Toss the mango in the sugar syrup. Leave it for 1-2 hours then it is ready to be served.
