Green Mango Chutney

Green mango chutney - a spicy and tangy south Indian style chutney that is a classic accompaniment with rice and curry. In general, a traditional south Indian meal is incomplete without pickle/ chutney and varieties of side dishes. Chutney is an all-time favourite accompaniment in Indian regional cuisine.

    • Dry roast fenugreek seeds and mustard on low flame for a minute or until fragrant.
    • Allow the spices to cool down completely and grind them to a powder.

    Adjust spices as per your preferred spice levels.
    This chutney keeps well for 10-12 days in the refrigerator when stored in clean and dry glass jars.
    Do not add asafoetida for a gluten-free version.
    Allow chutney to cool down completely before you transfer it to a jar.
    Adjust spices as per your taste preference.
    I've used kashmiri chilli powder that has milder heat and imparts vibrant colour to the dish.
    Grated mangoes yield approximately 275gms.
