  1. Ma'am, if I don't get Totapuri mango, can I use Alphanso mango.

    1. Sadia Mahmood Totapuri raw mango has lesser savoury taste. Normally chutney is done with raw mango ...some time instead of tamarind and mango gives out its own aroma. It is always better to use seasonal vegetables and fruits.

  2. Whoa! Am drooling here!! Your ideas are always unique and yummy!! Great going!!
