Hariyali Chutney ( Raw Mango Chutney)

Hariyali chutney

Apart from pickles raw mango can be made to tongue tickling chutney or sweet murrabba. Murrabba can be stored for long time like pickle but chutney can be stored in fridge for 10-15 days and in freezer for 3-4 months.
Different version of mango chutney is made in Northern India. But I have my version of mango chutney and my friends and family just love it. If it is season of raw mango then this chutney and chana dal vada would be my sons most loved snack. It is not simply an accompaniment to an appetizer or snack, but as a side dish to every meal.  This chutney is extremely good for making vegetable sandwiches,
Because this chutney has mint, cumin, coriander thus it not only enhances the taste but also aides in digestion. Garlic in this chutney gives relief in flatulence (gas trouble).

  • Add water in little amounts while grinding.
  • The amount of cumin seeds, onion, and garlic can be increased or decreased as per the taste or to change the flavor.
  •  This chutney can be taken while a person is having upset stomach as it has digestion aiding ingredients.
  • Make ice cubes of the chutney in an ice tray and store in the freezer. When required take a cube of chutney let it melt at room temperature and use it.
Suggested Variations:
  • Since, I like this proportion of ingredients in the chutney so much, that I really would not suggest variations.
  • Yet if one wishes to do away with onion and garlic, then it is suggested that some kala jeera should replace them to maintain the digestive property and sharp tangy taste.
