Mango chutney / Maamidi kaaya thokku pachadi

This is like an instant pickle but with little salt and oil. Can go as a nice companion with rice. This will taste more delicious when pounded in a hand mortar rather than in electric grinders.
Mango chutney
2 medium raw mangoes
Roasted Chili - 4-5 or Chili powder - 2 tsp
Salt as per taste

For seasoning -
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 3 - 4 cloves
Dry chili - 1 or 2
Curry leaves - 1 string
Green mangoes
Chop the mango and grind the mango pieces coarsely with salt and chili. For seasoning, heat a pan with oil. Add mustard, curry leaves, chili and garlic one after the other. Add the seasoning to the mango mixture. This can be preserved upto 3 days with out keeping it in the fridge. This will taste more from second day onwards.

This is also a nice companion for any daal recipe
