Raw mango chutney
I tried this South Indian style raw mango chutney recipe / Mangai chutney after watching “Arokiya samayal” program in Jaya tv. She made thinai idli and this chutney as a side dish for it. I tried both.Thinai idli din’t come well as i expected but this chutney was good .It is a nice side dish for idli,dosa. I am not sure of how it tastes with plain rice or curd rice.It tastes tangy and spicy. With the flavour of raw mango,coriander leaves & ginger,it was yummy. Do adjust the quantity of chillies based on the sourness of mango.Soon i’ll share a mango thogayal for rice. Now lets see how to prepare mango chutney with coconut in easy steps.
