Many of us are always on the look out for a different type of chutney that we can use as an accompaniment. This chutney is flavor packed and can be used as an accompaniment for idlis, dosa and can be mixed with hot rice as well. This recipe uses shallots which are a great and healthier substitute to Onions; which aids in metabolism and circulation.



Shallot—                  15 nos

Raw mango—          2 tbsp(I used a little ripe mango)

Garlic—                     5-6 pods

Fresh coconut—      3 tsp

Dried Red Chilies—    4

Tamarind—               small marble size

Mustard seeds—       ½ tsp

Salt—                          ¾ tsp

Oil—                          2 tsp.



Heat one spoon of oil in a pan. Add the garlic and saute till the raw smell disappears. Now add the shallots and saute till they turn translucent. Add the red and chilies fry for a minute. Finally add in the raw mango and tamarind, give it a stir and turn off the heat. Let is cool , add salt and grind everything together to form a smooth paste. Heat the remaining oil, add mustard seeds, when they crackle turn off the heat and add this to the chutney.
