Green Mango Chutney — Manga Chammanthi

I have plenty to share. Too many documents in various stages of draft. And even more pictures. I guess this is what happens when I am inspired. But hey it’s the weekend. Again. And we are off to watch the Asian Cup tournament and cheer for the desi team in the match between Bahrain and India this weekend. How about you all? I’m sure you too have exciting plans. Anyways, have a wonderful weekend all of you. And, once again, many thanks for your visits, kind words and support. I am touched.

This punchy chutney is a breeze to make, and serves as the perfect accompaniment for steamed rice and a veggie curry.

Green Mango Chutney —  Manga Chammanthi


1 small green raw mango, peeled and cut random
1 cup fresh coconut, grated
3 small green or red chilies (I used red)
2 small shallots
12 curry leaves
Small piece fresh ginger
Salt, to taste
1 teaspoon coconut oil


Put the mango pieces in a food processor or blender with the coconut, shallots, chilies, curry leaves and ginger. Blitz until the mango, chilies, shallots, curry leaves and ginger are finely chopped and well combined with the coconut. Do not add water. Season. Drizzle the chutney with oil; toss to coat.


  1. Now tell me how did you get the tickets?? I have been desperately on the look out :(

  2. Very nice Nashi. Thanks for your comment on the 'Torte'..everythings not going right for me today....- 500 bucks stolen, me home alone and lonely and my speech due on Sunday and am not yet prepared :)....your comment on our blog was the only saving grace.

  3. Joyce, we got the tickets a while back from the Villagio. We have tickets for the finals too.
    If you are planning to go for the finals you better hurry up and see if the tickets are available online. Good luck!
