Mmmm… Mango Chutney!

This is one luscious mango chutney that heralds the coming of summers in an Indian household. The chutney is unbelievably easy to make and enhances any meal.



2 green mangoes, peeled, stoned and sliced

2 tbsp mustard/olive oil

½ tsp fenugreek or methi seeds

1 tsp panch phoron (blend of five spices: cumin, fennel, nigella, fenugreek and mustard)

1 tsp red chili powder

½ tsp salt

4 tbsp jaggery/dark brown sugar

½ cup water




Heat oil.

Add the spices, mango slices, and once the slices are well coated with the spices, add water and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add jaggery and cook for another 5 minutes until the chutney is thick and syrupy.

Spoon into a sterilized jar and store.


The recipe is a version adapted from my mother’s repertoire, even though I was not quite able to recreate her magic in my chutney, it did taste pretty okay, if not really amazing like hers!

You can play with the amount of spices, salt and jaggery to suit your taste.
