Manga Kothamalli Chutney | Raw mango-cilantro chutney

What tempted me in this recipe was the unusual combo - Raw mango and cilantro... During summer days, can it get any better than that - two of my favourite ingredients coming together in a yummy tangy chutney .. Although I generally make this Instant mango pickle with raw green mangoes, I was inspired by Suma's recipe that I had bookmarked here. So, attempted this combo and loved it to bits.. I am always on the lookout for fun filled ways of introducing greens and veggies, and this was a power packed one for breakfast. Served it with Kanjivaram Idli, it was a total sellout with S giving it a 5/5 rating and kiddo lapping up her button idlis (which she likes only with Molagapudi) :) Wonderful way to start the morning, wouldnt you say ?

Thanks Suma for the recipe, which I modified a bit (sans peanuts and added carrots)... Am sure it would add to the growing list of yummy chutneys that my family loves so much. Now off to the recipe..

Prep time - 10 mins 
Cook time -  05 mins 
Serves - 3
Difficulty level - Easy
Serving suggestions - Idli Dosa or Uttapams / Chapati
  • Raw Mango grated - 1/4 cup
  • Dalia / Roasted Gram (aka Chutney dal) / Pottukadalai - 2 handfuls
  • Carrots grated - 1/4 cup
  • Cilantro / Coriander leaves - a handful
  • Grated coconut - 3 TBSP
  • Salt - to taste
  • Jaggery - 1 tsp (grated)
  • Oil - 1 TBSP
  • Tempering : Mustard seeds, Asafoetida (Hing)

1) Wash and grate mango and carrots separately.
2) Wash and roughly chop coriander leaves.
3) In a pan, heat oil. Lightly saute the grated carrots, cilantro and grated mango for 1-2 mins till the cilantro wilts a bit and the raw smell of the carrots diminishes. Switch off the flame, and add the roasted gram and coconut and saute once more. 
4) Cool the mixture thoroughly, and grind it to a smooth chutney with salt and jaggery.
5) Transfer to a serving bowl. Prepare tempering and add to the chutney.
6) Serve with  Idli Dosa or Uttapams.
