Green Mango Mint Chutney

I just love the season of mangoes. There are so many delicious recipes based around mangoes and it is so sad that they are available only for few months a year.
There are gazillon recipes for green chutney but this raw mango and mint chutney is the best green chutney I have tried so far.This is my mothers recipe and it goes well with almost everything like onion bhajiyas,chaats,samosas, as a sandwich spread.


1 medium sized raw mango,chopped roughly
1/2 Cup mint leaves
2 cups Green Coriander,roughly chopped
1 green chilly
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Cumin/ Jeera
1/4 teaspoon black salt
Salt to taste

How to prepare green mango mint chutney

Grind all the ingredients of chutney together in a mixer by adding a little water till you get a chutney of smooth consistency.Adjust water quantity and seasoning according to personal preference.
If you like your chutney hot then you can add 2-3 green chillies.I add raw Amla /Gooseberry to it  during winters in place of raw mango.The color of this chutney gets a little pale because of green mango but it makes up for the color by having loads of flavors. It stays well refrigerated for up to one week.
A must have accompaniment for rainy season snacks!
