Every year we prepare few mango recipes as a ritual. This is my most favorite tangy dip during mango season.

Using raw or green mango is integral part of Indian cuisine. There are different ways of making this chutney from using green chilies to red chilies, using coriander leaves and other simple Indian spices.

Few of the Indian communities prepare this chutney using fresh coconut, but such chutney remains good for a day or two. However, the recipe given below yields chutney which can be stored under refrigeration for 15 to 20 days.

Few important tips when preparing raw mango spicy chutney

Use good raw green mango which is tangy to taste.

Always use unripe firm mangoes and do not use ripe or half ripe mangoes for this chutney. If half ripe mangoes are used, they impart water to chutney and reduces the shelf life of chutney.

Dry roast all the spices on low to medium heat, to get nice color and aroma. Spices will get burnt if roasted on high heat.

For storing the chutney use a clean and dry glass jar. Use a clean spoon for serving. This helps in maintaining the shelf life of chutney.

Serving options:

It goes perfect with dosa, idli or hot rice. We prefer with hot rice and coconut oil.
