Amiya chutney/ Raw mango chutney with Mint

Right now all the mango trees around us are loaded and we were tempted into getting 4-5 raw mangoes  straight from the tree during our morning walk. Loads of summer foods made with raw mango swirled into my mind like Launji, aam panna, kairi ka sharbat etc. but a chutney was inevitable. If you have kairi/raw mango, you need to make one. No option. 

Both my mother & father in law are food lovers. Its amazing how they can detect the slightest of taste difference in various foods. This chutney was a result of the enthusiastic initiative by my father in law and the prompt action of mother in law.

  1. Kaccha Aam/kairi (raw mango)- 1 medium sized, remove the seed/pit
  2. Garlic- 3-4 cloves
  3. Onion - 2 medium (approximately equal to raw mango after chopping)
  4. Pudina/mint leaves - washed, 1 cup
  5. Green chilies- 2, chopped
  6. Kala Namak (black salt)- 2 pinch
  7. Red chili powder- 1/3 tsp
  8. Salt- 1/4 tsp
  9. Dry mint powder- 1 tsp

Take all the ingredients together  and blend it in the mixer/ food processor till they form a paste.
Enjoy on the side with main course of chapati (Indian flat bread).

Note: the addition of mint powder was prompted only because we ran out of fresh mint leaves. If you have enough mint leaves, then use them as it'll give a fresh tinge to it.
