MANGO season is almost over and this is the time when everyone craves for mangoes the most, as they are vanishing from the market and still you have its taste lingering on your taste buds.
So the best thing one can do now and the whole year round is simple , use a tinned mango pulp to create such a mango delight.

Simple and quick to make and so so tasty..


Add a 1/2 cup milk to every cup of mango juice, normally these tinned juice or mango puree are already sweetened so you need not add sugar.
churn in a blender to this add a spoon full of vanilla icecream.. churn again.
serve in a tall glass with a scoop or two  of ice-cream
and pour a spoonful of mango puree over the top..
This is a perfect drink on a hot and humid day.

I made this chaat item which is a common STREET FOOD item in Mumbai place where I reside , but I never eat it off the streets as I am not sure what goes into it and worry about the hygiene ..
I prefer making it at home as it does not need too much time and efforts with the right ingredients and some added healthy components you have a delicious and healthy dish in hand.

Ideally two chutneys are made to mix together to get this yummy and tangy dish But I make a single chutney for convenience and all of us at home like the final product which has a particular amount of spice .
People tend to do tow different types as each chutney has its own particular kind of taste i.e one is spicy while the other is sweet. so there are people  who like it very spicy while others like it sweet ..

Here are the recipes of both the chutneys  separately but i mix all the ingredients together and make final chutney 

Sweet Chutney / Tamarind Dates Chutney:



10-12 dates (soaked in warm water for about 1 hour)

½ cup grated jaggery add more if you like it sweeter

Small ball of tamarind (de-seeded)

1 tsp cumin seeds

Water as required

Salt to taste

Green Chutney / Coriander Mint Chutney:

1 cup Coriander leaves
2 sprigs mint leaves
2-3 green chillies
juice of 1 lemon
a little piece of ginger

In a big bowl mix together puffed rice finely chopped onions , tomatoes, raw mango moong sprouts, shev and finely chopped coriander leaves mix together chutney as per taste.
