About this recipe: This is a mango chutney that I developed that in my opinion and family and friends, is the best. It includes a small amount of chilli, but should you be averse to it, leave it out. Other key ingredients, apart from the obvious fresh mangoes are ginger and garlic but there are more on. It's easy by the way and you won't buy any after this!

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:1hr30min  ›  Ready in:1hr50min 

  1. Cut up mango into small pieces but vary the sizes. Place in a saucepan over a high heat then add all remaining ingredients. Bring to boil then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. (Don't allow to reduce too much, keep some liquidity, you can always add more water.)
  2. Transfer into sterilised jars and seal. Store in a cool, dark place until needed.


Don't get too worried with exact amounts but keep a record. You can always add but you cannot take out ingredients.
