Kairichi Dal / Raw Mango Chutney

Ingredients to make Kairichi Dal / Raw Mango Chutney

  • 1 cup chana dal
  • 1/4 cup grated Kairi / Raw mango
  • 1/4 cup fresh scrapped coconut
  • 1-2 green Chilies
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1/4 tsp Hing / asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp Haldi / turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste

How to make Kairichi Dal / Raw Mango Chutney

  1. Soak the Chana Dal for at least 4 hours. Drain the dal completely and grind it coarsely .
  2. Take a bowl, to this add the coarsely grounded chana dal and grated raw mango. (My raw mango was not that sour so I added 1/4 cup. If it is sour, 3 tbsp should be good enough.)
  3. Add fresh scrapped coconut, finely chopped coriander leaves, crushed green chillies, salt, sugar and hing. Mix it properly.
  4. Heat up 1 tbsp oil in a small kadhai and add mustard seeds to it. Once the seeds crackle, put off the flame and add turmeric powder. Pour this tempering/tadka over the raw mango-dal preparation.
  5. Mix and check for seasoning and adjust accordingly.
  6. Serve this tangy and tasty raw mango chutney and enjoy this spring delicacy!

My Tip:

If the raw mangoes are very sour, reduce the amount in the chutney.

Yes it's eaten raw that's why the asafoetida is compulsory.. this is a perfect recipe to be followed, we eat it all day in a bowl with spoon rather than eating it as a chutney..
