Chutney is a staple condiment of any cuisine across India. Recipes differ but primarily ingredients are kind of similar. This chutney is a Bengali version, and as the condiment is supposed to be in Bengali – Tok, Jhaal, Mishti – that is Bitter, spicy, sweet; this covers all three. I’ve learned this recipe from my Mother – in-law who is Oh so good at this style of cooking. This contains raw mango which is aptly around in summers as this time the food is usually light with not much of vegetables around and food is not rich in terms of gravy and spices.
