Savory Mango Chips

Remember my previous post on the Festive Food Fair, I forgot to mention 1 thing…the Mango Chips were a total success! Everyone loved it making them come back for more and more. There is something embarrassing about how I made profit with the 3 things I served.

I first set a price of 5 Baht for 5 mango chips on a plate

After the first 4-6 customers I noticed people were speedily coming in for more, it was in demand. It’s pretty exciting, because I loved this particular dish and I was sure everyone would too. Played out exactly the way I thought.

So guess what I did? I raised up the price to 10 baht for 5 mango chips per plate. People didn’t mind paying because it was worth it! It was sour and sweet and to give a twist of crispy by the potato pringle chips. Double taste & double texture makes a snack worth drooling over!


Now let me break this dish down for you. I made mango salad and served it on pringle chips, which held the salad perfectly thanks to it’s curvy shape. The mango salad obviously oozed out a lot of it’s juice making it soupy. However, to keep the snack crispy I made sure every time I spooned the salad on top of the chips I strained the juice. Otherwise, the chip would become soggy, not fun at all.

Mango Chips Plate

(Unfortunately I don’t have a good photo. It was made 40 minutes before the fair-so crazy rush)

Mango Salad Recipe:

  • 3-5 mix of fully ripe and 50% ripe mangos
  • 2 tbsp Soya Sauce
  • 2-3 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3 tbsp Chill Flakes
  • 4-6 tbsp Grinded Peanuts (or powder as per choice)
  • 2 tbsp Minced Garlic
  • 3 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt


  1. Shred the mangoes. Drain any juice out if any produced.
  2. Refrigerate it for 30 minutes till you prepare all the other ingredients ready to mix.
  3. Take a big mixing bowl with the peeled/shredded mangoes and add all the seasoning ingredients.
  4. Mix it up well! Have a taste and add according to your preference.
  5. Set out a plate with 5-10 hard/flat chips or pringle chips (the best ‘chip plate’) and add the mango salad on top of each. About 2-3 big not regular pinches.
  6. Time to indulge in this amazing homemade snack!

Are you drooling? because I am…I think I will have to make some for myself very soon 😛
