Nauratan chutney or sweet and sour mango chutney is a a popular chutney from India and Pakistan made from cooking unripe raw green mangoes or kairi with sugar and other spices. It has a sweet and tangy flavor and is a delicious tangy side to savory dishes such as daal chawal (lentils and rice) or kebabs. The reason it’s called nauratan chutney in my family is because there are nau or nine ingredients that go into making this chutney.
Once the mixture has completely cooled, it can be kept in jars or an air-tight container in the fridge. If proper care is taken, the chutney can be kept in the fridge for about 3 months. It’s best to store the chutney in small jars, using one jar at a time. Make sure to use a clean dry spoon when taking out the chutney.
This recipe will make about 1 - 1 1/2 kg mango chutney resulting in around 4 jars of 250 - 300 ml each. Serving size is around 2 tablespoons each.
