Aam chutni
Mango chutney

You may be surprised to discover that the flavor of a green, unripe mango may rival the flavor of a colorful ripe mango. Often the flesh beneath the skin of a green mango will be orange colored. Adding the sugar to this recipe will give the chutney a sweet and sour taste.

Preparation time: 15 min
1 large green mango
1 fresh chili
1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)
2 tablespoon fresh mint leaves

Peel the mango, cut the flesh off in strips, and scrape the rest off the seed. Chop the flesh. Then grind it with all the other ingredients in an electric blender (or in a mortar and pestle) to form a thick pulp. Serve portions of the chutney in small dishes as an accompaniement to a meal.
