Green Mango Chutney

Recently our Family friend cum Relative Jyotsna Kaku visited our house with an accompaniment.i.e.,a delicious chutney .It was just superb.As usual I wrote down the recipe and tried it twice.I came to know afterwards that this chutney is a speciality of hers.
This chutney can be taken for long distance train journeys and this goes well with Chappathis and Parathas.
Ingredients
Raw Green Mango/Maangaai/Kairi 1 medium
Dry Coconut/Kopra/Khobra 1 to 1 1/4 cup(grated)
Powdered Jaggery/Vellam/Guelle 2 cups(some use double the qty of grated mango)
Jira powder 1 Tbsp
Red Chilli Powder to taste
Salt To taste
For Seasoning
Oil 2 to 3 Tbsps
Methi seeds/Fenugreek seeds/Venthayam 1 to 2 tsp
Mohri/Mustard seeds/Rai/Kadugu
Hing/Asafoetida/Perungayam
Turmeric/Haldi
Method
Roast the grated dry coconut in a kadai till it turns to reddish brown color and a typical aroma of roasted drycoconut emanates.
Peel the skin of Mango and either cut or grate it.Add roasted dry coconut to mango pieces,salt,powdered jaggery,jira powder and chilli powder.This chutney is quite spicy so may have to add more chilli powder.Grind it in mixer.
Heat a kadai,add oil ,add Methi seeds,let it become deep red and again wait for the aroma of methi seeds ,add mustard seeds,hing,a pinch of haldi and add the seasoning to chutney.crispy methi seeds add to the taste of this chutney.

Padma, The chutney looks deadly. Have to try it out.
The picture looks very professional. One tip though - Have a plain tablecloth in your pics. The tablecloth competes with the dish ;).
