Seasonal twist on an old favourite ~ Raw Mango and Coconut Chutney Recipe

i have had the most hectic few weeks in a long time…..sometimes barely being able to meet deadlines and other commitments…..its been a roller coaster….and now that its over….i miss it all!! i miss my momma!!

one of the nicest things about having your mother around is all the food…cooked and served up!! plus there is all the shopping and the talking that goes on without a break!!

with the summers here and my attempt to try and eat what is seasonal (but that is an oxymoron these days!! strawberries in the summer and mangoes in sept!!) i find myself making this chutney a couple of times a week atleast while raw mangoes are still available… puts a twist on our favourite idli and dosai accompaniment of fresh coconut chutney and gives it quite a flavour kick!! even k who isnt particulary fond of sour stuff was seen reaching for refills…..tangy, spicy and just the right dose of colour, green mango and coconut chutney is my entry to WBB#22 – May Mango Madness that has come to perch at Escapades for thi s edition after spreading its wings from Saffron Trails where its genesis lies.

raw mango chutney ingredients

for the green mango coconut chutney – (Makes 11/2 cup)

1 cup grated fresh coconut

    Mango chutnye looks yummy, we make this a little thicker and usually eat it with rice, any pachadi we eat with rice! 🙂 Will have to try it with dosa.

    Green mango chutney is my favorite chutney in the world, we make it thicker, and have it with rice normally… But I can see how it works with dosa or idly. Yummy!
