  23. Dear Nayana
    I liked your comment at my blog ..
    This Chutney is my wife's favorite..but she makes with Jaggery or Sugar. ( Big Jar is there in the fridge). I will tell her to try dates too. In Bong style, we often add roasted cumin and red chili powder.

    Now I am grinding my favorite, green Mango coriander chutney (exactly as per your specification) :-)
    Happy cooking

  29. Great chutney , I am not sure whether love or am ashamed of the fact that this was the precursor of "brown sauce" !
