Fresh Mango Salsa / Chutney

This is a great fresh chutney that could go with most carribean or indian dishes. Vary the size of the mango chunks to taste.

    Mango Selassie

    Take equal parts yogurt and fresh diced mango, and puree. Add honey to taste and a few cubes of ice (~2 per cup of yogurt), and blend until ice is mixed up and the mixture is a bit fluffy.

    Pour 4/5 of the mixture into a separate container, add green food coloring to the remaining 1/5, blend until green.

    Pour the green-color mango lassi into the bottoms of the cups. Pour half of the plain (yellow) mango lassi over the back of a spoon into the cups. Some will add to the height of the green, so it should end up roughly equal.
