    Very tempting..a complete new one for me..Recently came to know about this kinda brinjal chutney which is all green brinjals, green tomatoes for the tart and some coriander and green chillies. Nice use of Mangoes here.
    Shall surely try this one as we rarely find sour green tomatoes here!
    Cheers
