Pork Patties with Mango Salsa



This is a nice alternative for xmas. I used a mix of beef and pork for this recipe, because that is all I had in my freezer.


  • 1 large red onion finely diced
  • 1 tsp  ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 500g lean pork mince
  • 3/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1 small red chilli fine chipped
  • 3 tsp hot mango chutney ( you can buy this in most supermarkets)
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • generous handful of chopped fresh coriander
  • Oil for frying


Combine all ingredients, season and mix together. (If you have a food processor you can use that). With damp hands, form the mixture into 8 patties, then chill for 10 mins to firm up. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add the patties and cook 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked through. Serve with mango salsa.

Mango Salsa

  • 1 large mango, peeled and flesh chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • a couple of pinches  of brown sugar
  • 1 small chilli seeded and chopped.
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh coriander


In a bowl combine lemon juice, sugar, chilli and coriander and let it stand.  Before serving add mango – give it a gentle toss and serve.
