Raw Mango Pickle and Chutney

Raw Mango Pickle and Chutney

Usually I have to keep Devansh away from food while Kalpesh is shooting it. But this time, I was the one that needed to be restrained. I am a die hard pickle fan; I can eat pickles like sabzis. Which is not a good habit really. Because if pickles contain too much salt they can cause loss of bone density. Readymade pickles invariably contain too much salt that helps enhance their shelf life. So it’s best to eat homemade pickles. Having said that I must confess, that I don’t make pickles at home. But I am blessed with a mother who used to make awesome raw mango pickles when I was a kid and now a mother-in-law who makes different kind of pickles frequently.

I have been gorging on raw mango chutney and pickle all through summer. This time my mango tree yielded more than 100 mangoes. And we haven’t plucked all of them yet. One of these days I shall share a pic of the tree with mangoes on Facebook. To come back to the recipe, it is actually a guests’ post. MIL made the pickle and I made the chutney using mom’s recipe. Raw onion, used in the chutney, is very beneficial in summer as it helps keep your body’s temperature low and prevents heat stroke. So the chutney is droolicious and healthy at the same time. I am sure kids and adults alike will enjoy the chutney and pickle.
