Mint and Green mango chutney

This Mint and mango chutney hardly took 5 minutes to prepare. Honestly I couldn't believe it would be so tasty. Usually, when my mum prepares mint chutney, she fries the mint leaves for a minute and then fries all the other ingredients, let them cool and then grind them.

But for this Mint and mango chutney, you don't have to fry anything except the tempering with oil which is optional. I got this idea from "Pudina-ginger-lime" juice that I regularly used to have at Juice Junction in Bangalore. It was a heavenly drink. I will post that recipe some time. Anyway, I was a little skeptical about the raw mango that I added since I was not sure if mint and green mango would work together. Guess what, It actually works beautifully and the aroma is simply mouthwatering.

I served it with baked Rice balls and they complimented each other very well. It also goes well with just plain rice, Idlis and dosas.
