To begin with, heat the mustard oil in a pan over medium heat. Once hot, add mustard seeds, kalonji, methi seeds, and dried red chillies. Stir and saute for about a minute until the seeds start to crackle.
Add the diced mangoes to the pan and stir well to coat well with the spices. Cook for about 2-3 mins until the mangoes start to soften slightly.
Reduce the heat to low and add haldi, red chilli powder, grated ginger, and salt. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
Cover the pan and allow the mangoes to cook for another 5-7 mins. (This helps in releasing its juices).
Uncover the pan and add jaggery (or brown sugar). Mix well until the jaggery melts and combines with the mangoes. Continue cooking for a few more minutes or until the chutney reaches your desired consistency.
Remove it from the heat and let it cool to room temperature. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and enjoy!
