Raw Mango Chutney/Instant Pickle BM6 Post 3
There was a time when I used to eat mango in only the raw form, yea yeah you can roll your eyes. I used to hate ripe mangoes. I would eat it like once in the whole season and that too because mum and dad would kind of force me to atleast taste. And something changed when I was pregnant, I could live on mangoes, I would dream about them... I could eat them all day long and the fresh lot (a big lot) of mangoes that had arrived fresh from the village did no help to control the urge to eat... That is the day I knew that damn my life is indeed changing :P I havent complained since that time though... mangoes is something I can do loving... but in all this my love for raw mango has not diminished that remains unparalleled.
- 1 mango large Raw chopped in small squares
- 2 tsps ginger grated
- 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
- handful curry leaves a
- 1.5 tsps chilli powder (pretty hot it turned out so reduce if u want)
- to taste rock salt
- 2 tsps lemon juice
Heat oil in a pan, add hing to it followed by ginger. Let them saute for 2 mins. Add curry leaves.
After 1 minute add the raw mango and fry for 2-3 minutes. Now add the rest of the masalas. Mix well.
Add a little water to it and let it cook till mango is just about cooked. Dont overcook it, the peel should be slightly crisp.
In the end add the lemon juice and take off the gas.
Serve hot or cold. I personally prefer it more the next day when the flavours have totally blended with each other.
Raw mango - semi ripe would do too
Oil - use mustard oil if u can stand the smell I can't so I used normal oil but I have a feeling it will taste good here for those who like
U can serve it with rice like my hubby loves it or have it like me... with a namak and mirch ka parantha... :)
