Mango Chutney

Don’t laugh at me, but the first time I heard about mango chutney was about 4 years back. I have never heard about them, seen them or had them before that. I totally forgot about them till I made them for the Bengali Thali. That’s when I got hooked.

I love the sweet, sour taste with a hint of chilies hidden inside.

And so, two weeks back, I started making them again. With some minor changes this time. This too was tasty.

Ingredients:

  • Raw Mango             :    1 medium, chopped fine
  • Sugar                         :     1/3 cup, or as per taste
  • Chili powder          :     1 -2 tsp, per taste
  • Water                       :      1 cup

Method:

  1. Wash, peel and chop the mango into small pieces. I got around 1 cup of chopped mangoes.
  2. In a saucepan, add these mangoes with water and cook until done. Keep an eye on it, so that it doesn’t burn and add a little more water if it dries up.
  3. Once it is cooked, add the sugar and chili powder. Cook , stirring and mashing with a ladle in between, until you get a thick consistency. I prefer it to be a bit chunky, so mine was like a chunky jam consistency.
  4. Check the taste and add more sugar or chili powder per your taste. Store in a clean jar. Refrigerate.
  5. Serve with anything, everything or eat it as such.
