If you’re going to be making curry regularly, and you really should be….you should also have a quick recipe for homemade mango chutney. Mango chutney, well, kicks your curry up to the next level. The curry is awesome on it’s own, but the chutney just adds one more tangy/sweet element to your dish. It also goes well with roast pork, turkey or as a condiment on a turkey burger. You many not want to be making this every time you make curry – I’m more than happy to use mango chutney from a jar, but if you’re making dinner for company, it’ll be one more thing for them to ‘ooooh’ over. This recipe is easy and quick.
Makes about 1.5 cups
1 large ripe mango, peeled and diced (or 1.5 cups frozen diced)
1/4 cup onion, finely diced
1/2 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, grated
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground turmeric
1/4 tsp ground cloves
Prepare mango and dice into small cubes. Place the mango and all ingredients in a microwave safe dish. Stir, uncovered for 4-7 minutes.
Cool, cover and refrigerate. Will keep for one week in fridge.
*Alternatively, it can be cooked on the stovetop, in a medium sauce.an, over med-low heat, for 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
