Aam ki chutney with besan ki roti. (mango chutney with gram flour tortillas)

Mango overdose is here ! Its summer all around and Mumbai summers without mangoes are incomplete. Its like, God sent Mangoes during this season as compensation for the unbearable heat that we Mumbaikars face every summer.
Mangoes make summers tolerable!!
And of course, I had to exploit this 😉
I decided that aam ki chutney (Mangoes are called aam here, pronounced like ohm, but replace the o with “a” …ah-hm” ) would be a happy change from the spicy lunches I have been having recently.

Aam ki chutney paired with besan ki roti (gram flour tortillas) is amazing not only fir lunch, mind you this is highly filling and heavy ; but also can be served as a dessert without the tortillas.

Either way, they taste delicious!

The mangoes I use for all my dishes are Alphonso, they are so juicy that even while you peel them, the juice is sure to fall off and reach your elbows.
One thing to keep in mind is , use the freshest mangoes. We don’t want to compromise on taste here now, do we? 🙂

This recipe easily serves around 4-5 people.

3 ripe Alphonso mangoes(peeled and cut into tiny pieces)
