Bengali AAM(Mango) CHUTNEY – perfect for summers!

Homemade AAM CHUTNEY

Our Bengali mother knows numerous authentic Bengali recipes like the back of her hand. She can whip them up in the kitchen anytime, without referring to any recipe or instructions. One such recipe of hers that we love, especially during summers, is the Aamer (Mango) Chutney. It is perfect for consumption after a meal during the summer time as it cools the body while providing a tangy taste. Did we mention that it is simple to make too? It takes a little bit of patience to get the consistency of the mangoes right and then, the dish is a cakewalk.
Everyone in our family loves this Chutney, we consume bowls of it post a meal and don’t get bored of it in the least! Hence, a video of this on Rasoisaga, as well as a written blog, was coming! So, here is the recipe step by step:
