Raw Mango Chutney

Raw Mango Chutney
Sometimes you just need that one smack of flavour, punch or colour to make the whole creation worth it.
That’s what humble chutney has done for years. While continuing to do so, this Indian staple is now talking the centre stage and being preferred over jams,  imported dips and marmalades around the world.
I feel the same with the arrivals of raw mangoes. The first idea of preparation that comes to my mind is the sweet-sour chutney out of them
I am always in search of raw juicy mango with a thick flesh to make the best chutney out of them
