Mango Chutney

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

While making the accras I was considering which dip I would prefer to eat it with. Immediately, mango chutney came to mind. But I soon disappointed myself. There was no mango chutney already prepared and stored in the fridge, and there was no green mango anywhere. That, I call bad planning! So, instead I had to opt for the tomato ketchup, the next best thing.


However, good luck striked, I got a few long mangoes and now I have mango chutney in my fridge for you all to see.Mango chutney is a popular dip used for pholourie, baiganee, and a whole lot of Indian delicacies and other foods.I enjoy eating mango chutney with pelau; the hot sour taste really works up your taste buds.

This dip is very easy to make (provided that you have mango and chadon beni in your backyard). The mango must be almost ripe, but still a bit green – “half ripe” we say. It is blended in water with chadon beni, hot pepper and other seasonings to make a thick paste. This dish is what makes many of the Indian delicacies, especially phulowrie, tastes extra special. It"™s only competition, in my opinion, is tambran (tamarind) sauce, but of course there is coconut chutney and chadon beni chutney fighting for a close third. Or is it that there is a tie for second place between the rest? Anyhow, my taste changes from time to time depending on availability of the fruits!

Here is Mango Chutney. (Please note that this recipe yields about 4 cups of mango chutney. You can adjust the amount you need).



4 mangos (preferably long mango)

1 hot pepper

7 cloves garlic

1 bundle Chadon beni

salt to taste


Long mango

Peel and grate the mango

Cut up the garlic, chadon beni, and pepper
Place in a blender and puree
add salt
Mango ChutneyPlace in containers and refrigerate or freeze
Well that’s it for another post. Coming up next, we’ll do a little baking. Bye!

    What ?? No raisins, no onions, no ginger ?? Hmmm
    that’s the Ja. style

    Love your recipes. Just got some shadon beni from up in the hills… its called “fits weed” or “spirit weed” in Ja. good for siezures, they say.
    In hot, direct sunlight, it “bolts” …that is, runs madly around its environs, growing everywhere with minimum foliage.
    Seems the secret to keeping it in a more restrained, vegetative state is to grow it under shade. Whats your experience with this ?
