This summer sandwich spread is an age old Ayurvedic recipe from kitchens of India (Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, in particular). As the unripe mangoes start finding there way to the market, this yummy chutney too becomes a lunch staple. The cooling onion, unripe mango, sprig of mint and green chilly is blended with a touch of mustard oil and salt to beat the hot dry summer.
