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..
