Manga chammanthy / Raw Mango Chutney - Kerala Style

Oh! The mere mention of this dish brings more than enough saliva in my mouth to start drooling! You know, this has got the nostalgic emotion attached along, cuz my mom used to make manga chammanthy for us during mango season when it is available in abundance in our ancestral home. And that usually, is during our summer vacations. It is so easy to prepare and when she makes this, we just don't ask for any other side dish along with rice. She makes this chutney and gives us an egg omelette and by then, we would've reached cloud 9!

Ingredients :

Raw Mango(medium) : 2 nos.
Grated coconut : 1 cup
Shallots : 7 nos.
Green chilly : 5 nos.
Ginger : 2 inch piece
Curry leaves : 2 nos.
Salt : as required
  • Peel off the mangoes and cut them into small pieces for grinding to become easier.
  • Peel off ginger and cut into small pieces.
  • Grind all the above ingredients in a blender without adding water to a coarse to fine paste. Check salt and add more if required.
  • Serve with plain rice or dosa.
Note : For effective grinding, put shallots, ginger and green chilly first and then the rest of the ingredients.
Remember, just 2 curry leaves is required, not 2 sprigs of curry leaves!
