Raw Mango and Onion Salad

This is one of my favourite salads because it takes me back to my childhood days and summer vacations in Nagpur. My Nani would very often make it. I love its sweet, spicy and tangy taste. As we grew old, vacations were only during winters and raw mango is only available in the summers. Every summer, I would ask mom to make it and she made it the same way. Finally, I learnt from her and made it myself during this lockdown.
