Ambuli Chutney (Raw Mango Chutney)

Ambuli Chutney is a very simple recipe. In konkani, ambuli means raw mango. It requires very few ingredients and can be made within 10 minutes. I got this recipe from my amma. 
Raw mango is one of my favorite. I can eat it with little salt at any time of the day. Few days back when I saw raw mangoes in a shop and got them to make chutney (so that I can post the recipe of the same). It was so good that I finished it off. Hence got it again:-) Try this variation of chutney.



Ingredients:
  • Grated Coconut, fresh/frozen- 1/2 cup
  • Raw Mango, peeled and diced*- 1/3 cup
  • Green chilli- 2-3
  • Garlic pods- 2-3
  • Salt- To taste
*The amount of raw mango depends on the the sourness of the mango as well as how much sour you want. So adjust it accordingly.

Procedure:

Remove the hard green skin of the raw mango and dice the white portion. 



Now grind everything together mentioned under ingredients with little water (nearly 1/4 cup) to a semi coarse paste. Check for the salt, sourness as well as spiciness. If everything is good then transfer it to a bowl. Ambuli Chutney is ready!!



Serve it as a side dish to rice. I would suggest you to serve this chutney with rice and a spicy curry like Batate Vaagu, Batate Song or any other curry of your choice. Above measurement serves three people.
