Mango chutney

When mangoes are in season they just seem to be everywhere. Everyone loves mangoes and they taste good almost every way you try them. Think of the options and they line up.. pickles, pachadi, sweet chutney, sambar, dal, shakes, lassi...... oh oh and the line is still going on.. :)

I love this chutney that is very simple to make and stays in the fridge for quite a while. Love to eat this with rice and dal... a perfect combi i feel. And cos it stays for a longer time we get the option to try it with different items too

Serves... can be refrigerated
Serve option... Hot rice and dal

This is what u'll need....

Raw mango 1 big
Hing - a pinch
Salt to taste
Red chilli powder 1.5 tspn
Mustard seeds 1 tspn
Curry leaves

Here is the stir....
  • Peel and dice mango into small cubes
  • To a hot pan add oil. When the oil is hot enough add mustard seeds and wait till they splutter
  • Toss in some curry leaves, add hing, salt and red chilli powder
  • Immediately add the diced mangoes and give it a full stir so that the masala and oil is well coated
  • Fry for 2-3 minutes and add a little water
  • Cook this covered till the mangoes are cooked through. Give it occasional stirs so that they dont stick to the bottom of the pan
  • Serve with dal rice or curd rice and enjoy
