For Spice - We use Green chilies to make this chutney.

Instructions to make the Chutney
Before starting to make this chutney, it is good if you have all the ingredients set up. As we are using brinjals, always chop and soak in the water before starting the cooking.
Heat a nonstick pan with oil, add cumin seeds and let it splutter.
Next, add the chopped green chilies and saute.
After a few minutes, add the chopped brinjal and lower the flame.
Cover with a lid and cook on low flame for 5 minutes.
Now add garlic cloves and saute well.
When the brinjal is well roated, takes about 10 minutes, remove to a plate and let it cool.
Peel the raw mango and dice into 1/2 inch pieces.
Take the roasted brinjal along with raw mango in a mixer jar and grind to a paste.
Now heat the pan again with oil, temper with all the ingredients one by one.
When the ingredients are sauteed well, add the ground paste and cook for 5 minutes on low.
Remove and serve with steamed rice.
Substitutions you can make
Actually, there is nothing you will have to substitute in this chutney. However, you can reduce mango if it is very sour and use a bit of tamarind if you like.
You can serve this chutney with hot steamed rice. However, this will taste great as a side dish for Dosa or Idli too.

This chutney will stay good when refrigerated for 2 to 3 days.
Before serving, microwave or heat it over the stove.
