Chris and I LOVE cooking a good curry. We also love all the Indian-style starters/appetisers too. And what goes really well with all of that?

Thats right, Mango Chutney!

This recipe is actually another one of Chris's creations. He made a batch whilst I was out one day and when I came back the house smelled AMAZING!.

πŸ“‹ What do we need?

  • For mango chutney it's important to go for some ripe but still-firm mangoes.
  • White wine vinegar for acidity.
  • For the spices I'm using Garam Masala (affiliate link) as a blended spice mix. You could use the separate spices but I find that this works perfectly.
  • The Aseofoetida and Nigella seeds are optional, if you're having problems finding them, but I find that they add a nice depth of flavour.

Ingredient swap for ghee

For the mango chutney, you can swap out the ghee for sunflower or olive oil if you haven't got any in.

If you like curries and Indian-style cooking then I definitely recommend getting some ghee. We use it in nearly all our Indian-style dishes from our favourite Chicken Madras to Onion Fried Rice.

Mango Chutney Recipe (3)

This is a really simple mango chutney recipe:

  1. First of all we want to start by softening a finely diced onion in a little ghee.
  2. Add in garlic and spices and cook for a couple of minutes until the kitchen fills with those delicious aromas.
  3. Then we want to add in the mangoes, sugar and vinegar.
  4. Simmer over a low heat for 1 Β½ to 2 hours.
  5. Mash the large pieces of mango.

You can leave the mango chutney with larger chunks of mango or you mash it up with the back of a fork or...

πŸ‘©β€πŸ³PRO TIP use a potato masher to mash up the large pieces of mango so you have a finer chutney.

Change this up by varying the amount of spices to suit your tastes, you could even add a freshly chopped chilli or a teaspoon of minced ginger to give the mango chutney a kick of heat.

🍯 How to store Mango Chutney

You want to store the mango chutney in sterilized jars with a sealed lid.

I use 250ml (8.5oz) Kilner jars <affiliate link.

They can be kept in sealed jars in the refrigerator unopened for around 2-3 months.

Once opened, so long as it's kept covered and refrigerated in between uses, it should last around a month.
