Kaccha Aamer Chatni (raw mango chutni)

Mangoes are the most eaten fruit during summers. Where the rasila aam is everyone's favorite, there is another dish which is very famous in Bengali kitchen, that is kacha aamer chatni or raw mango chutni. It is taken as a dessert in Bengali main course. During summers it is said to cool the body, so here is the simple and easy stems for making this chutni..

First, you have to wash and peel the raw mango. Then either you grate it or finely chop it, discarding the seed inside. Here i have grated the mango (one) so that it takes less time to get softened.

Now heat 2 tbs oil in a kadai, and temper with black mustard seeds.

Now add the grated raw mangoes, and fry for a minute in low flame.

Now add a pinch of salt and a pinch of turmeric, pour 2 cups of water and bring to to boil. Close the lid and let it simmer for 10-15min in low flame.

After about10 min add 5-6 big spoon full of sugar (if you have grated 1 medium mango) and again let it boil with closed lid for another 10 min. Your chatni is ready...

The end product will be neither too liquid nor too solid, it will be semi liquid. The tangy sour and sweet flavor of this chutni will surely win your heart.. Enjoy..
