You can make your own version of the fruity snack that is sweeping the streets of Ho Chi Minh City.


600gr of ‘keo’ mango (2 to 3 Cambodian mangoes)

3 teaspoons of water

1 teaspoon of fish sauce

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

1.5 teaspoons of refined sugar

0.5 teaspoon of chilli powder

Shake mix ingredients

2 teaspoons of shrimp salt

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

1 teaspoon of refined sugar



Combine the water, fish sauce, brown and white sugar and chilli powder, bring to the boil and then let cool until the fish sauce smell has dissipated.


Chop the mangoes into bite-sized pieces and let them stand in chilled water for one hour.


Dry the mango, then combine with the sauce and let it absorb for 1 to 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally.


Finally, place the mango and ‘shake’ mixture in a cup with a lid and shake hard.


30 second should be enough.


And there you have it, your own tasty street snack.
