Raw Mango Coconut Chutney Recipe| Easy Chutney Recipes

I am a terrific fan of Andhra cuisine. I love the flavors and the heat that comes along as a freebie. Its an exhilarating thing for me to eat hot spicy food and have tears trickle down my eyes. I love heat in my food. Ok. I agree. All my aforementioned statements almost mean the same thing. But sometimes, i just like being verbose.
Anyway, coming back to Andhra cuisine, i ve always been blessed with friends who hail from Andhra and who are also very magnanimous when it comes to food. We usually play cards with a few friends over the weekends. So, one such weekend was our friends turn. And my friends wife who is also a soon to be mommy, put together this amazingly delicious meal within minutes of our arrival. I mean, i ll keep tipping my hat off every single minute of my life to such people. I consider such souls as magicians. And one dish that she served in that lip smacking dinner of hers was this mango chutney. I made some variations to her recipe to suit our palate. And i must say, this is a recipe that i shall be making every time the mango season hits the markets.
