Leftover Roti Special: Nachos with Mango Salsa!!

My daughter ( who is currently visiting me) decided to skip dinner yesterday, as a result I had leftover rotis in my kitchen. In the morning, she asked me to cook something tasty from it which she had not tried before. So I started thinking what can I make?

She loves mango, so I decided to surprise her with this yummy appetizer – Leftover Roti Nachos with Mango Salsa.

Wasn’t she surprised? Her surprised look combined with the big bright smile after eating it was a memory I will cherish forever.

Needless to say my mother’s day gift has already been given to me 🙂 🙂
