Mango Chutney

It had never crossed my mind to even attempt to make a mango chutney before. It seemed like a big faff for something that tastes quite nice out of a jar, right?

Well, no as it happens, i was very wrong to be such a lazy ass.

If you make this chutney, i reckon you probably will make the same promise to yourself as I did about never buying shop bought again.

This is seriously goooood stuff and it's pretty quick to whip up. The boring & longish part for me was prepping the mango, so if you went and got some already prepared then you're laughing! I made this whilst the kids were having their tea, and once it had simmered quietly on it's own for a bit, the spellings & reading books were done & it was already bath time. Now that's how little of a faff this mango chutney really is.

Go on go on go on, give it a whirl!

For a large bowl full, you will need:

Recipe from Bill Granger Easy

- 3 mangoes peeled & diced

- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

- 1 1/2 tbsp grated ginger

- 1 red chilli, chopped

- 1 tbsp coriander seeds

- 1/2 tsp turmeric

- 2 tbsp olive oil

- 1 cinnamon stick

- 1 tsp sea salt

- 100g caster sugar

- 125ml cider vinegar

And you will need to do this:

1. Place your garlic, ginger, chilli, coriander seeds & turmeric in a pestle and mortar & crush into a paste.

2. Heat the oil in a meddium sized saucepan over a medium heat.

3. Add the spice paste and cinamon stick & fry for about a minute or so, until fragrant.

4. Add the diced mango, salt, sugar ^ vinegar & cook for 30 minutes until the mixture is thick a syrupy.

5. Set aside to cool. Then serve with some spiced chicken chapatis. Enjoy!
