Mango Chutney

7 Replies

I have just made a large pan of home made Mango Chutney and it is delicious. Instead of sending seperate e-mails with the recipe, i will put it on here. 1) Bring 3/4 pint of vinegar and 1Ib of sugar to the boil in a large pan stirring all the time. 2) Gradually add 2 Ib 4oz of cubed mango stirring to coat the mixture. 3)Add 2 tsp fresh ginger, finally chopped, 2 tsp fresh garlic, crushed, 2 tsp chilli powder, cinnamon stick, 2 3/4 oz raisins, 3 1/2 oz dates ( stoned), 2 tsp salt and bring to the boil again, stirring occasionally, reduce the heat and cook for about 1 hour or until the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. 4) Remove the cinnamon stick and discard. 5)Spoon the chutney into clean, dry jars and cover tightly with lids. Leave in a cool place for the flavours to develop. I usually leave it about 2 weeks before trying the first jar. I make home made chicken korma and naan breads too. So much better than bought stuff and healthier too. Only thing i havn't made is poppadums, usually get visitors to bring them out. Try the chutney, it is lovely and well worth the effort.

Sounds good, will try that!

Thanks for the recipe, I will give it a go, what quantity of mangoes and what sort of vinegar did you use? I usually make my own chutney for Indian meals with quinces (as I have them in garden) make it up as I go along! I have easy recipes for Sag Chicken and Pork Vindaloo if you are interested. Anyone else got a good Indian recipe (not including a cook in sauce!)

Hi Jendean, i bought 3 mangoes from Lidl and when i cubed them i popped them in a bowl to weigh, the recipe asks for 2 Ib 4 oz and that is exactly what they weighed. I used the cheap vinegar ( vinaigre d'alcool colore').

Yorkshirepuds, would you mind telling us your recipe for naan bread please? I have tried a few and whilst they are OK I am still trying to find a better one.

Hi Michlin, i have sent you an e-mail with the recipe. You can also add garlic and coriander which i like but my hubby prefers them plain. Hope you get on ok with it.

I made 9 large jars of green tomato chutney with 3 kilos of tomatoes. The recipe can be adapted for all sorts of vegetables or fruit which would otherwise go to waste. Chutney keeps for a long time and improves with age.

I've also made some bramble jelly using Delia Smiths recipe. It's lovely and the brambles just cost me a few scratches!

Hi Dreamer, your tomato chutney sounds lovely. There is nothing nicer than home made produce. Never made anything when i lived in England but now i live here in Brittany i have turned into Delia.
