Mango and Avocado Sandwich

Mangoes and creamy avocados are both delicious and I often pair them together in salads, salsa or even curd rice. Avocado is great in a grilled cheese sandwich or or a veggie wrap too. But I would have never thought of making a sandwich with sweet mangoes had it not been introduced to me by a friend. When she made one for me....a really simple sandwich with plain white bread (no healthy nutty bread here) and sweet Indian mangoes and butter. It was delicious. Since then I have made mango sandwiches often and this time I thought of adding avocado along with the mango.
This is one quick and simple sandwich for anytime.

Sweet ripe mango (peeled and sliced)
Avocado (sliced)
Any white bread or bun
(I had the Hawaiian sweet rolls, so I used those)
A pinch of black or plain salt and red chilli powder (optional)
A drizzle of honey


Slice the buns/rolls into half and apply butter on both sides. Place slices of mangoes and avocado. Sprinkle with a little salt and red chilli powder. Drizzle with a little honey and place the other half of the bun on top.
Eat immediately.


  1. This looks great! If only mangoes were accessible this time of year. Will be waiting for next summer's mangoes to try it out :-)

  2. I would never have thought of avocado and mango together! Thanks for the idea!
