One of the simplest yet lip-smacking chutneys, Pacha Manga Chammanthi is a no-cook dish made by coarsely grinding raw mango and coconut with spices.
I was clueless when it came to the letter R for this A to Z Challenge. Having done Kerala Style Rasam last year, all I could think of was Rava Upma but then, my heart wan't in it. Dad, Mom and I were pulling our hairs apart and finally when I looked at the mango tree in our courtyard in full bloom, I had the Eureka moment. Nope. Not exaggerating one bit!
Chutney is usually served as a side-dish with Dosa and Idli and as a dip with evening snacks like Bajjis. But then there are these no-gravy, dry chutneys that are served with rice gruel/kanji and rice.
Kerala Pacha Manga Chammanthi is prepared with unripe mangoes. They are slightly tangy and sour and a wee bit spicy. Traditionally, it is prepared with the help of a stone hand grinder but we can always grind them using the blender/mixer-grinder.

Neha Sharma says
I have never tasted this mango chutney. Being a mango lover and this being the right season, I will try to make it.
This looks super yum!
Harjeet Kaur says
Mango is my favourite....try the mango rice. It is awesome. In Andhra, we have spicy chutneys made with almost every vegetable.
Shilpa Garg says
Aha! This is an interesting recipe for raw mango chutney. Have never made it with coconut. Will try it one of these days!
This is my favourite summer chutney except mine does not include coconut.
In Bengal also we have raw mango chutney. I don't know how we prepare, but it tastes good. We don't eat it in the beginning, but at the end of the meal before desserts.
Mayuri Nidigallu says
We make this chutney too, but we don't add shallots. I am going to add them the next time I make it though, as it would enhance the taste even more.

Raw mango chutney is new to me. But it sounds really exciting. My wife who is an andhrite once prepared what is called Mango rice. I have never had this kind of rice and it was indeed news to me that you can use Raw Mango for making mixed rice. But I did like it a lot as it was not sour. And I will now try out Raw Mango Chutney.
This is so easy to make. We make sweet mango chutney and that's quite different from this one. I am surely trying it.
Raw mango chutney is the best dip for me in the summers. I love the tangy taste of raw mangoes. Your preparations are almost the same as I love to eat and It is looking so tempting.
Roshan Radhakrishnan says
Finally one that I can make (I hope!)
Sanjota Purohit says
Liked the decoration. We prepare grated raw mango chutney. I didn't know that dried chutney can be prepared. Noted and will ask my mom to prepare this 😀
Samira Gupta says
Sure, I will try it. Your recipes are a delight as they are totally new to me and thus find them very interesting. Lemon pickle is already in my list.
Can we imagine our summers without mango chutney?? This recipe looks different, I'm gonna try it for sure, thank you
