Coconut-Mango Chutney is a classic Chutney and a very traditional one at that. In many religious homes coconuts are offered every other day to God and so there would be loads of coconuts at home any time of the year. So this chutney was prepared very often at my grandma's place. But I guess the taste of the chutney made in the typical Indian style mortar-pestle is out of the world!! 

This reminds me of what my mom told me the other day about the scene regarding coconuts in my paternal grandparent's house(about 50-60 years back). In their house, they never broke any coconuts at home as my paternal grandpa was more of a practical person and less religious, so to say ! Apparently my grandma used to send all the kids to the nearby temples to get some extra broken coconuts for a paltry sum and used to make many delicacies including this chutney.

Another thing is that they used the rock salt (Ralla Uppu) and not the current day processed powdered salt. I definitely think that the rock salt imparts a special taste to anything in which it is used. My mom still uses the rock salt at home. I wish we could do the same here too!!

Here is the recipe for Day 7 and that brings us to the end of this edition of Blogging Marathon which we thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks once again to Srivalli who organized this marathon. We are surely looking forward to the next edition.

Coconut-Mango Chutney

Ingredients - 

Coconut Fresh / Frozen 1 cup
Raw Mango Grated 1 cup
Green Chillies 2-3 (or to taste)
Coriander leaves few (Optional)
Salt as needed
Seasoning (Oil 2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 2 tsp, Methi Seeds a pinch, Mustard seeds 1 tsp, Red Chillies 3-4, Hing/Asafoetida generous pinch)

Method Of Preparation - 

In a heated sauce pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning. Just about when the dals begin to brown, add the green chillies and saute for a few seconds.

Add the grated coconut and saute for a minute or so and switch off the flame.

Mix in the grated raw mango in the warm sauce pan and gently mix. 

Add the chopped coriander leaves and grind the mixture upon cooling, adding salt as needed.

Please note that if the raw mango is not sour enough, feel free to add a little tamarind juice when grinding.

Some might like to add extra seasoning(tadka) to have a crunch of the dals.

Serve it with hot steaming rice and ghee and experience the 'divine' taste!!
