Raw mango chaat recipe with step by step photos – tangy and spicy chaat made with raw unripe green mangoes.
Raw mangoes are in season. So I make quite a number of recipes with them like aam panna, chutney, dal, pickle and raw mango rice. This chaat is also one such recipe.
Usually when I make this raw mango chaat, I make it all sour and tart. In hinglish I would say, its only Khatta and not Meetha. so there is no sweet element in the recipe. This chaat will be loved by those who like tangy food and especially those who like to have raw mangoes with some salt and red chili powder.
If you prefer a balance of sweetnees and tang, then add some sweet tamarind chutney or saunth chutney in the chaat. Or you can also add sweetened yogurt/dahi (curd in which some sugar is added)
This raw mango chaat recipe is easily adaptable to the ingredients you have at home and you can easily substitute or add your choice of ingredients. E.g you can skip puffed rice (murmura) and add corn flakes. You can add steamed sprouts and cooked chickpeas instead of potatoes. So you can come up with various alternative ingredients for this chaat.
Serve this aam chaat immediately as otherwise the puffed rice becomes soggy and loses its crispness.
