Mango Chutney


This is my first attempt at making chutney and I was having the impression that it's going to be a very tedious chore.  When a friend gave me a few mangoes recently, I quickly browsed through the internet to look for some easy recipes to try my hands at making chutney.  I was taken aback when I realised that it was not so difficult as I had imagined and  was truly very satisfied with my maiden attempt!




Recipe for Mango Chutney

    Ingredients

    • 850 gm/1.3/4 lb mango flesh, cut into 3/4" cubes.
    • 80 gm raisin
    • 1/4 cup apple cider
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 Tsp chopped garlic
    • 1 Tsp chilli powder
    • 1  Tsp garam masala
    • 1 Tsp mustard seeds
    • 1/4  Tsp turmeric powder
    • 2 Tsps oil
    Method
    1. Lightly fry the chopped garlic and onion with oil, add in the mustard seeds, stir fry.
    2. Add in the mangoes, raisins and the rest of the ingredients.  Mix well and once it starts to boil, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 1 hour, till syrupy.  Stir occasionally to prevent the bottom from burning.

Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) ~ CNY 2020 核桃酥

These Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) are without hup toh/walnuts.  I do remember from young that the traditional Hup Toh Soh that I ate those days were quite big, around 4 inches in diameter or because I was small and to me everything looked big!  They were made with lard and were very crunchy but there wasn't any trace of hup toh in them and nobody asked why.   Although these biscuits are without walnuts, they are still crunchy and yummy.  If you are allergic to nuts, this is a recipe for you.  Give this a try for the coming Chinese New Year.
However, if you would like to have a recipe of  Hup Toh Soh with walnuts, do hop in 'here'.
