Raw Mango Chutney is a popular summer accompaniment. It is usually made and stored in the refrigerator for later use. It pairs well with both rice and chapati.
Raw mangoes are sour and mouth watering. One cannot resist eating them. A wide range of dishes can be made with raw mango, but make sure it has a sour taste, to give its zing.
Today, let us make the tasty raw mango chutney. Different states have different versions of the same chutney. The sad part is there is change in the method of preparation from one region to another. The same chutney is made sweeter by adding more jaggery to it in one part of the state, while in the other, they love it tart.
