Spicy Mango Salad

It is that time of the year, when mangoes are in season, and not just ordinary mango, but sweet, juicy and the best mangoes.
Being a mango lover and mango known as the king of fruits in India, I decided to come up with this recipe.
This recipe is quick, easy and refreshing at the same time.
The recipe is an inspiration from the Mumbai rains coming soon, just like fragrance from the wet sand in the first rain 'Petrichor' and the smell from the sweet mangoes.
Just like the lovely taste of the rainwater and the spiciness from the salad, and the freshness from the mint leaves reminds me of how fresh I feel after getting wet in the rains.
It is one of those dishes that I can have while sitting on the window and enjoying the rain.

Ingredients -
Mango - 2 Whole
Onions - 1 Whole
Mint leaves - 20 gms
Coriander Leaves - 10 gms
Lemon Juice - 10-15 ml
