sweet mango chutney recipe – i am still addicted to mangoes even after the rains have started pouring here. today i made a sour raw mango chutney with those mangoes.
this quick mango chutney posted here is made from ripe mangoes. the sweet mango chutney recipe has been shared by one very regular reader of the blog – Lajwanti Shetty. Lajwanti had sent me some quick recipes and one of them was this mango chutney. it is a south indian chutney made from sweet and ripe mangoes along with coconut. thanks Lajwanti for sharing the recipes. i have shared bengali style mango chutney recipe.
this sweet mango chutney goes very well with dal-rice combination. since it is sweet and made along with coconut it tastes good with idli and dosas too… not to forget we would have the chutney with phulka and paratha too. in fact you can just have the chutney directly. it is so tasty and good.
in this chutney the mangoes are not blended or made into a pulp. if using large mangoes like alphonso than just peel and chop the mangoes finely. squeeze the juice from the seed into the chutney and add the chopped mangoes to it.
if using the small and juicy varieties of mangoes, then peel, remove the seeds and just add the whole mangoes to the chutney and mix well.
so if you still have access to ripe mangoes in your city or town, then do try this yummy sweet mango chutney made from ripe mangoes.
