Chutney goes well with rice, bread, wraps or sandwiches. Chutney can be used as a replacement for jam if you like sweet and sour taste. Mango chutney is very easy to make at home. If you like more sour taste, you may add some vinegar in the recipe.

Homemade Mango Chutney

  • 2 medium size green mangoes
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar (use more sugar if you like the chutney to be sweeter)
  • Juice of 1 medium size orange
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Chilli powder to taste
  • Peel the green mangoes, wash them and cut them into small pieces.

Homemade Mango Chutney

    This is one of my favorite condiments - odd as it may sound, mango chutney is an excellent addition to American style chili.

    I adore mango chutney, all kinds of chutneys truly and I eat it with nearly something... My mother's minted apple chutney with bread and cheese, for example - unbeatable. I solely discovered your blog recently and I adore it! Straightforward and every one the recipes are nice!
