Pacha manga Chammanthi / Raw Mango Chutney

Chutney /Chammanthi had been always my favorite,so does my elder son loves it.Whenever I think of mango chutney/ manga chammanthi,the first things that comes to my mind is the long train journeys when we loved carrying the parcels of steamedrice, chammanthi(chutney),mezhukuparetti(stir fry)& omelettes in wilted banana leaves wrap.The aroma of the wilted banana leaves with the parboiled rice just increases the hunger,and we can devour it so much..My mom always used to say at home they never are fond of cooked rice but during travel they are just the opposite and that was true :-)Coming back to today's recipe of the same flavorful, simple chutney /chammanthi with raw mango.

raw mango 1 medium sized deseeded and chopped
coconut 1 cup shredded
red dry chilli 2-3
shallots 5-6
ginger 1 small piece julienned
curry leaves

-Heat a pan and dry roast the chillies first to warm it up(makes easier to grind).Remove on a
plate, keep aside.
-Then add all other ingredients in the same pan except salt and dry roast for 2-3mins.
-Put all the ingredients in a blender with salt(don't add water) and grind to a somewhat smooth consistency till all the ingredients are well ground and combined.Hold it in your hand,see if it holds shape then chammanthi/ chutney is ready to serve.

* Check the sourness of mangoes and add accordingly.
* Dry roasting the ingredients is optional,You can directly put it in the blender and grind it too.
* You can add half a tsp of cumin seeds to roast too, my MIL adds to it.

Enjoy the yummy chutney with steamed rice,until next time..

Wishing all my US friends & readers,A Very Happy Long Weekend !!!!
