Mango Peanut Chutney

Mango Peanut Chutney



This time of the year in India, the air is filled with the heady aroma of mangoes..Green ones, ripe ones..Each variety ripening in its own time. While ripe mangoes rule the roost, unripe green mangoes have a magic of their own. A simple favorite snack is to have them sliced thin and seasoned with a dash of salt and chilli powder. My mom uses green mangoes while making Sambar, my aunt makes yummy mango curry, my mom-in-law makes mamidikaya pappu, my dearest ammamma makes mango pickle and I make Mango Peanut Chutney. I must thank my friend Sowju for sharing this recipe. From the time I tasted this addictive combination at her place, I have been hooked and what fascinates me most is the simplicity of the ingredients. Mango and groundnuts blend superbly and create a riot on the palate!

Here it is:

Recipe:

Recipe Source: My Friend Sowju

Ingredients:

Unripe Green Mango - 3/4 of a big one
GroundNuts / Peanuts - Around 3 fistfuls
Dry Red chillies - 2
Salt - As per taste
Finely diced onions - 3 Tbls

Roast peanuts over low heat till they turn light brown. Let them cool. Dice mango into small pieces. Grind peanuts, mango, dry red chillies and salt in a food processor, adding just a sprinkle of water. Mix the diced onions.

Serve with hot rice.

As spring is reminscent of mangoes, I am sending this off to Meeta's Monthly mingle. I hope she accepts it.
