We live in Saudi Arabia in a close-knit community full of different cultures, and our neighbours from Pakistan have become like our extended family away from home. Kokub, one of our neighbours, makes the most amazing mango chutney. A few years ago she invited me to help her. Of course, she doesn't use a recipe, so the NEXT time I went over with my scale so I could recreate her magic on my own. What an incredible experience!
This recipe is originally my mother's, however I've taken my own twist with it, increasing the sugar and adding vanilla - removing the butter to create a perfect tablet every time that's easy for anyone to create. Family and friends and strangers from around the world have tried it themselves and sent me feedback stating that it's turned out perfect and tastes delicious. It melts in your mouth and is bursting with sweetness; the slight hint of vanilla is an added bonus that leaves for a great aftertaste.
