Maangai-Spicy-Chutney

#MaangaiSpicyChutney  #RawMangoSpicyChutney : This Summer I have been experimenting with #maangai to prepare variety of recipes other than what I usually do. The other day I was watching a cookery show on television by the famous Revathi Shanmugam. In that show she demonstrated the way her Telugu neighbour used to make a spicy maangai chutney that goes well with rice as well as tiffins. So far I have done chutneys with raw mango along with coconut. I found that her maangai chutney is without coconut. So I tried this spicy chutney following her method and added mint leaves also to give an extra zing to the chutney. The addition of mint leaves gave a distinct welcoming aroma to the spicy maangai chutney.
Here comes the recipe.
