I love to eat raw mangoes as is,smeared with some red chilly powder,salt and coconut oil.I ate it too,till my teeth started shivering at the mere mention of raw mangoes.Then I started thinking of ways to use up the raw ones to make way for the ripe ones.Bottles of Chundo were made,instant pickles were made and bottled up and now what?
As always,amma came to my rescue by not giving one but two recipes for a chutney.Now how could I forget this one?Raw Mango sour chutney which goes perfectly well with a bowl of kanji or even with fluffy idli.I,of course,can eat the chutney as is.
Raw Mango - 1/4 cup,peeled and chopped
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Green chilly - 1
Salt to taste
Coconut oil - to drizzle
Grind together coconut,chilly and salt till coarse without adding water.
Mix in the chopped mango and pulse for 10-15 seconds till everything comes together.
Just before serving,drizzle some coconut oil on top.
