Kairichi Chatni / Ambyachi Daal (Raw Green Mango Chatni)

Kairichi Chatni / Ambyachi Daal (Raw green Mango Chatni)

In Australia summer starts in month of November and we already started getting raw mangoes in farmers market. So thought of making some 'Kairichi Chatni'. 'Kairi' is a word in Marathi language used for Raw green Mango.
This is very tempting, mouthwatering delicacy from Maharashtra.
I remember my mother use to take me with her for the 'Chitra Gauriche Haldi kunku' to her friends place were they use to serve us Kairiche Panha  and kairichi Chatni / Ambyachi Daal

Chitra is the first month of a Marathi calendar.
Gauri is a Goddess of worship.
Women and young girls from our neighborhood are invited for the function. 
This function is only for women.

 I use to love that function. So now I learned to make 'Kairichi chatni / Ambyachi Daal' from my mother.

Ingredients :
  • 1/2 cup Chana Dal (Soaked for 4-5 hours or overnight and then drained)
  • 2 Raw Mango peeled, seed removed and grated with grater.
  • 1/2 cup Fresh coconut grated
  • 4-5 Green Chili
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • pinch of Asafoetida (hing)
  • 4-5 Curry leaves
  • 1 tsp Jaggery / sugar
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Coriander leaves
  • Salt to taste
Procedure :
  1. Rinse chana dal 2 to 3 times in water. Soak it in enough water for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Mix Chana dal, green chili, Coconut, Jaggery, salt together and blend coarsely.
  3. Now mix raw mango and dal mixture together. Adjust the amount of raw mango according how much sour dal you want.
  4. Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan.
  5. Once oil is hot add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and turmeric powder. Pour this tempering over mixture.
  6. Garnish with coriander leaves
