Summer cool chutney/dip

This chutney is another special recipe of my mother. This chutney is made with two ingredients (onion and raw mango) which are best coolants for summer heat. Sweet and tangy in taste, it is a good remedy to beat the summer hot blows.

1 medium onion
1 medium raw mango(kairi)
1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder(jeera)
1/2 teaspoon black salt(kaala namak)
2-3 teaspoons sugar(or more if more sweetness is desired)
1/4 teaspoon red chili powder(lal mirch powder)
1/4 teaspoon turmeric(haldi) for colour


Peel the skin of mango and cut it into small pieces
Cut the onions into four pieces
In a grinder, Add all the ingredients and ground it into a smooth paste.
Tasty"Summer cool chutney/dip "is ready!!

Store it in a covered container and fridge it.

Optional notes:
One can add green chili if desired.
An addition of pomegranate fruit seeds to this chutney(after it is made) will enrich the taste but also the look.
Consume this chutney within 2-3 days.
