Mango Chutney

By far, I like to assume that mango chutney, an absolute authentic Indian vegetarian dish (Yogurt Rasam & Murungakka Sambar/Dhal Curry) is so loved by many throughout the world. One which I have already spoken about in my previous Mango Chutney recipe, perhaps, I am just saying, I should have named this chutney as "mango thokku". Then again, whatever the name is, mango (Mango Cheesecake) & spices (Saffron Cinnamon Poached Pears) are certainly the core ingredients for mango chutney's truly lovable tangy, spicy and aromatic tastes. The best part is also that mango (Mango 7-up Mocktail) chutney can be paired alongside so many dishes. Either for a wholesome vegetarian meal (Mushroom Tofu Soup, Lemongrass Turmeric Rice, Vegetarian Mutton Curry Leaves, Cumin Stir Fried Spinach, Cucumber Yogurt Salad & Eggplant Spicy Sauce) or non-vegetarian meal (Egg Vindaloo, Green Fish Curry, Prawn Mango Curry, Bean Sprouts Salted Fish, Curry Leaves Grilled Salmon & Lamb Kofta Curry). Indeed choices are aplenty, grab the ones you like prior to making and finger licking.

2 medium size mangoes - sliced into medium size pieces with the skin on.  The seeds can be added too.
I large red onion - chopped
1/2 inch ginger - chopped
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 cinnamon stick - broken
2 tsp plain chili powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp thick tamarind juice
2-3 sprigs curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, sauté onion, ginger, cumin seeds and cinnamon.
Add mango and the rest of the ingredients except curry leaves.
Pour in 1/4 cup of water.
Cook to soften mango, depending on how soft and mushy you prefer.
If you like a mushy type, add more water.
Lastly add curry leaves, stir and remove from heat.
Show some love by trending alongside "cook with nava-k"on every other social media please!!
