Maangai-Chutney 1

#MaangaiChutney 1  #RawMangoChutney 1 : Now market is flooded with Mangoes as Summer is at its peak. They are available in different varieties with varied taste. Generally raw mango that is not very sour in taste and little bit sweeter is preferred by all to enjoy with red chilly & salt or black pepper powder & salt. Street vendors also sell cut pieces of this raw mango and serve you after topping the pieces with red chilly powder & salt mix. This variety is called by many names such as bengaloora, thothapuri, kili mooku maangai, etc.,... But mothers and grandmothers always used to advise children not to eat raw mango that too with chilly powder as it might affect their stomach and increase their body temperature.
But actually mango is very nutritious and loaded with vitamins & minerals. It is rich in vitamin A, C and minerals like potassium, phosphorous, magnesium & calcium.
I always used to make Maangai Pachadi with jaggery and once I tried a chutney with raw mango. After that I have started preparing different combinations of maangai chutneys with or without coconut.
Here comes one more chutney which I tried recently.
