A couple of months ago when I was still in my hometown,it was raining mangoes.I prefer raw mangoes to the ripe one.I love to smear a little chilli powder and salt on the raw mango and take a bite- I'm in heaven!!When I visited one of my friends house during the mango season,I came home with a bag of my favorite raw mangoes.So some of it went into this chutney.
Mom had once written down this recipe[in her memory] and passed it on to me.A very tasty and tangy chutney that can go with Indian breakfast dishes,served as a dip, or with piping hot steamed rice and a dollop of homemade ghee..Yummm.....
Grated raw mango - 1 cup
Grated coconut-1/2 cup
Cumin powder-1/2 teaspoon
Chilli powder-1/2 teaspoon
Roasted urad dhal -1 teaspoon[optional]
Ginger-a small piece
salt to taste
Oil- 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds-1/2 a teaspoon
Curry leaves-a few
Red chilli-1 ,broken into bits
- Heat a pan with oil and saute tomato,mango,ginger and coconut on medium flame.
- When the tomato gets mushy add the cumin and chilli powder
- Mix well and switch off the flame.
- Cool and grind with salt, roasted urad dhal to a paste adding a little water.
