This simple mango chutney recipe is deliciously sweet and provides a great balance to rich, spicy foods like curry and samosa.

They say you have to try a new food three times before your tastebuds can decide whether they really like the food or not. I think some foods take longer unless you give up trying too soon. I usually don’t give up easily (except with liver, gag) so it took numerous tries before I acquired the taste for Indian food. Now I put their spices on almost everything, ha!

 

However, it took only one try to fall in love with this chutney. It was a perfect condiment for the spicy samosa pie I served to my guests once. I love making my company my taste testers and I was confident this pie from Foodess would turn out great. I adopted her chutney recipe to go with my fillo samosa firecrackers.

 

The hardest thing about making this Indian mango chutney is the wait. Even cutting mangoes is easy. And if you don’t like Indian or spicy food and think you won’t need mango chutney, think again. Try this:

  • Spread mango chutney on a sandwich with leftover turkey or chicken.
  • Add it to your grilled ham and cheese sandwich.
  • Top crackers with mango chutney and your choice of mild cheese.
  • Put a dollop on pork chops.
  • Mango chutney with a touch of curry and mayo makes a great potato or chicken salad dressing.
  • It brings out the best in vanilla ice cream.

 

HOW TO CUT MANGOES:

  1. Stand the mango on your cutting board stem end down and hold. Place your knife about 1/4″ from the widest center line and cut down through the mango. Flip the mango around and repeat this cut on the other side. What’s left is the seed.
  2. Cut parallel slices into the mango flesh, being careful not to cut through the skin. Turn the mango and cut another set of parallel slices to make a checkerboard pattern.
  3. Scoop the mango slices out of the mango skin using a large spoon or turn the scored mango “cheek” inside out by pushing the skin up from underneath, and scrape the mango chunks off of the skin with a knife or spoon.

    I love that you add ground cloves to spice up the chutney and I bet the raisins provide great texture. Now I am craving aloo samosas and a bowl of this chutney.

    You are rolling nice with Indian cuisine, Jas! I’ll admit I’m addicted to Indian food. Love it!!! I’ll kill for a vindaloo. Your mango chutney looks awesome. Is it easy to get mangoes over there? I miss the sweet ones we get in Thailand. Here the variety of mango is meh…

      Thanks, Ann! Vindaloo is originally Portuguese dish, no? I love anything with garlic!
      We usually have two kinds of mangoes available in my city all the time. Bigger, green/red ones and smaller, yellowish orange in color. Not sure of their names, though.
