Raw Mango Chutney is prepared with most basic yet palatable ingredients, giving a luscious punch of delight leaving you urging for more. Here the mangoes are lightly spiced with mustard, red chilies and a slight hint of fenugreek. 

The Mango Chutney is an authentic dish prepared with fresh raw mangoes. The Chutney was prepared and stored in earthen pots for more shelf life. The Mango Chutney has a shelf life of only two to three days. This particular mango chutney can be prepared with any variety of mangoes. To balance the sour taste of the raw mango, various spices are infused to the dish. Here the jaggery is also added to give the sweetness and enhance the taste to the Mango Chutney. Fenugreek is added for the bitter taste to get the right balance to the dish. 

Traditionally Mango Chutney was prepared with the skin and the seed of the mangoes in tact. Though the mango peel created bitterness, it contains several health benefits. Here in the recipe, since the skin was little thick, discarded them and used in the recipe. One cannot imagine the flavour and depth of this Mango Chutney yields.
