Ingredients :

  • 6 Raw mangoes
  • 4  Dry Red Chilies
  • ½ tsp Fennel seeds
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ½ tsp Kalonji ( Nigella ) Seeds
  • Jaggery – as per taste grated or crushed
  • 1-2 tbs oil
  • ¼ tsp Salt


  1. Peel the mangoes and either cut flat squares or slice them as I did.
  2.  Heat oil add the chilies and all the masala seeds
  3. Once they splutter add the mangoes and fry it for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add about ½ cup water and salt, cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes.
  5. When it is almost mushy add the jaggery  and little bit more water.
  6. Keep stirring till all the jaggery is melted and let it simmer till the mangoes are fully cooked and mushy.
  7. Adjust the consistency by adding water.
  8. Depending on how tart or sweet you want the chutney to be, you could add more jaggery too.

Remove and enjoy with paranthas.
