Notes

NOTE-
1-you can also use slightly ripen yellow mangoes  for making this chutney ,then add little less sugar .
2-Can also use jaggery/gur instead of sugar .
3-If you don't want to make it chunky and want a smooth chutney then cook it till it become soft at step 4 ,then mash it with the laddle and then follow the recipe,But I like to make it slightly chunky.
4-If cooked properly it stays fresh at room temperature for about 4 months.
5- The amount of sugar vary according to the sourness of mangoes ,you may need 500 gms to 650 sugar to make this.
Serving suggestions  -serve with any snack,starter or as a side dish with any meal.
