Aam da chutney

This is a seasonal recipe made especially in summer months. This dish is served mainly as an appetizer along with main dishes. It has a chatpata taste.

2 Raw mangoes
100 gm jaggery
1 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp termeric powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
1/2 cumin seeds
1 tsp oil

Wash and peel the raw mangoes. Cut it into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan. When oil is heated properly add cumin and fenugreek seeds. Once it starts cracking add the mango cubes,red chili powder,termeric and salt. Cover the container and cook in low flame for 5 mins. Once,the mango is cooked,it will be very soft and will easily mix with the spoon. Smash the mangoes to form a thick and pulpy jelly. Now add the jaggery and cook for another 4 to 5 mins until jaggery gets mixed in the pulp properly. Remove from heat and serve. This dish is equally good to be served hot or cold.
