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.

  • 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.


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.
