Sour Fruit Dipping Sauce

This is my favourite dipping sauce for sour fruits like mangos and apples. When I was in my childhood tomboy phase, I would climb the apple tree in our yard and pick apples before they ripened. Everytime I make this appetizer, it brings back joyful memories. This recipe is a little different from the Green Mango Salad.

Vegetarian Recipe: Sour Fruit Dipping Sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon dried chili flakes
2 tablespoons ground toasted sticky rice
1 green mango or green sour apple

Remove mango peel but not apple peel. Slice fruit thinly so that surface is size of a teaspoon. In a small bowl dissolve sugar into fish sauce. Add chili flakes and mix. Add ground toasted sticky rice and mix. Serve sliced sour fruit and Dipping Sauce separately so that individuals can take a slice to dip into sauce.
