Spicy Mango Chutney
Serves: 4 People
Total preparation time: 10 min.
3 large sweet mangos, slightly ripened
1 tsp lemon rind, minced finely
1 tsp lemon juice
10 green chillies
1/2-inch piece ginger, minced finely
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
6 tsp cooking oil (We suggest coconut or canola oil)
Salt to taste
Peel the mango and cut it into small chunks. Heat about 2 tsp oil in a pan and fry the chunks till they turn soft. Drain, mash well and set aside. Roast the fennel seeds, cumin and coriander seeds and crush coarsely. Set aside.
Heat the remaining oil and add the mustard. When the mustard seeds crackle, add the ginger and green chillies and fry for about 1-2 minutes. Add the mango, powdered masala, lemon rinds and lemon juice. Salt to taste. Bring to a boil on a low flame. Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. Serve with Tandoor Chef Naan.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge. If boiled and cooled correctly, since no water is used in making this dish, it should keep for more than a week.
Did you know that in India Coriander Seeds are called dhania and are a common seasoning ingredient in many Indian recipes. These flavorful seeds have a lemony citrus taste when crushed. Coriander seeds have many uses from being a key ingredient in garam masala and Indian curries to being used in brewing Belgian wheat beers.
