Tips to make Good Raw Mango Mint Chutney-
Mint gives a very nice fresh flavor to the green chutney but as mint is slightly bitter in taste so do add coriander leaves in the chutney. I always add 2-3 parts coriander and 1 part mint , which balance the taste .
Always add some sugar or jaggary if you are adding mint in the chutney to balance the slight bitter taste of mint.
For sourness add raw mangoes/ lemon juice or tamarind pulp in the chutney.
Add some almonds/ roasted peanuts/ cashew in the chutney. This not only add nutrition but also gives a nice creamy texture to the chutney. The natural oils of nuts act as a preservative and increases the shelf life of the chutney.
Always add ice cubes or chilled water while grinding as due to the heat of the mixer jar the mint get oxidized easily and thus effect the colour of the chutney.
Serve this delicious chutney as a dip with any fried snacks like pakora, samaosa, dahi vada, aloo tikki , chaat etc.
Serve with steamed snacks or breakfast like- dhokla , khandvi, idli,upma, poha etc.
Serve as a side dish with any Indian meal.
Use as a sandwich spread or mix with yogurt and serve with starters .
