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.
    3. Test for taste.
    4. Spoon immediately into clean, sterilised warm jars and seal.
    5. Let cool, then keep refrigerated.
