Method

  1. In a large bowl mix the diced mangoes with the grated ginger, seeds, chilli flakes and salt, then leave to rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan, then add the mango mixture. Cook for few minutes, then add the sugar and vinegar, mix and cook for 10 minutes on a low heat, stirring occasionally so the mangoes don’t stick to the pan.
  3. After 10 minutes mash the mixture roughly, cover the pan and cook for another 10 minutes on a low heat. Take off the heat.
  4. Pour the hot chutney into the warm, sterilised airtight jar(s). Enjoy with Indian food or simply a slice of toast.

  1. Romy’s tips…

    Spices are a vital ingredient in pickles and chutneys, and each holds its own magic. When you buy whole spices (or ground spices or blends), get small quantities to keep the aromas and flavours fresh.

    When making spice blends, if you toast or roast the spices it’s important to leave them to cool down before blending.

  2. Store in the fridge and use within 4 weeks

  3. Bottle chutneys and pickles in airtight sterilised jars.

  1. Loved this mango chutney, easy to make and delicious with dahl and yoghurt, and also on toast as recommended. Am going to make my second batch soon.
