  • 300g mango cut into small cubes
  • 75g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 50ml white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of chilli flakes
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Salt to taste


  • Crush the garlic cloves in a mortar and set aside.
  • Put a pan on medium-high heat with oil. When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds.
  • When they start to sizzle, add the grated ginger and crushed garlic. Fry for a few seconds and add mango pieces.
  • Add sugar, vinegar, salt and chilli flakes. Mix everything and let it cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes or until the mangoes are cooked.
  • With a potato masher mash the mangoes to obtain the right texture of Chutney.
  • Correct the salt and turn off the heat. Store it immediately in a pre-sterilized glass jar and seal with the lid tightly. Put the jar upside down and leave it there for 12 hours.
  • Once opened, store it in the fridge.


Tips and tricks:

  • To prepare Mango Chutney choose mangoes with a firm texture, not very ripe.
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar and vinegar to your taste.
  • Chilli flakes add a spicy touch to this chutney. If you don’t like too spicy, you can choose a mild one.
  • I like to serve this Chutney on top of crackers with Brie…. super delicious.
  • You can also serve it with roasted or grilled meat. I love it with roasted chicken.
  • Another great option to use it in a grilled sandwich with cheese or serve it with any fried food.
