Sweet and Spicy Mango Chutney

Chutneys are used a lot with rice and curry meals.  It's gives a little added sweet and tangy flavor to your plate with the other more spicy dishes.  Chutneys can be made from many types of vegetables and fruits.  This is a mango chutney made with ripe fresh mangoes.

PS... this is another recipe re-do from the early days of my blog.  I always like making mango chutney... but I desperately needed to take better photos.

2 mangoes chopped
1 Tbs of grated ginger
1 Tbs of grated garlic
1/4 cup white or cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tsp salt (or to taste)
1/2 Tbs red chili powder (or to taste)
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 cinnamon stick


Wash and peel the mango.  Then slice the meat off the fruit around the large pit.  Chop the mango into small pieces.  You can also plus them in a food processor. Then grate 1 Tbs of ginger and 1 Tbs of garlic.

Tip:  I use a vegetable/potato peeler to easily peel the skin off the mango.

On medium-high heat add vinegar, sugar, water, salt, red chili powder, turmeric and cinnamon stick in a pan.  Then add the chopped mango and grated garlic/ginger.  Stir well and bring mango mixture to a gently bubble on stove.

Cook for 15-20 minutes stirring and smashing the mango until it is fully cooked and there are no raw pieces.  You want the liquid to evaporate and become a very thick glaze.  Taste for salt and flavor here.    Allow to cool completely. Store mango chutney in the fridge.  Enjoy.

Note: I recommend waiting 24 hours before eating the chutney to give it more time for the flavors to develop.

  6. Your photos always look so great to me! You take a lot more time and make them really great shots. I have not even come close yet. There is always so many people waiting to eat, I find it really hard to get a good picture. You are WAY ahead of me! Looks great, and I am sure it tastes even better!

  7. Oooh! Mangoes are my favourite fruit and my weakness! Can't help falling in love with this Mango Chutney. Lovely clicks Ramona :)

  8. This chutney looks so good, sweet mangoes and ginger- would be nice with some rice or evn a slice of bread.

  9. I have wanted to make this like forever! Thanks for the reminder. Now I just have to buckle down and do it instead of eating the mangoes plain.

  10. Yeah, this is a winner. I would really love this. I can see this on top of grilled spicy chicken. Nommmm.

  11. This looks fantastic. So bright and beautiful. I too think it would be amazing over grilled fish or chicken. YUM!

  12. I just made this in a slightly modified version. If you want it for currys then try and use a cup of deseeded large chillies instead of the powder stuff. I also used honey instead of sugar and added a Star Anise. I actually pureed the mango in a blender to make it more like a sauce as well.
    It is fabulous and I would never have managed it without this base.
    Next I think I will try to make it as you suggested I just think it will be gone too quickly. At least spiced up you can only eat so much of it.
    Great recipy
