:
Recipe type: Condiment
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: About 5 Half Pints
Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 red chili, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons whole nigella seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 mangoes (about 250-300 grams each), peeled and diced
  • 2 cups white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup white vinegar
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil over medium-high in a medium stock pot. Saute the ginger, garlic and red chilies for a minute. Add the spices and saute for another minute. Add the diced mangoes, sugar, salt, and vinegar and stir to combine. Bring it to a rapid boil and reduce to medium-low. Steady simmer for 1 hour. Remove from heat and allow it to cool. If you prefer smaller chunks, use a potato masher to mash the mixture to the desired consistency.
  2. For storage, chutney will keep for a while because of the high acidity content. A conservative time frame would be up to 2 months in the fridge (in a sealed jar) or for several months in the freezer. Canning of course yields the longest shelf-life: Pour the hot mixture directly into sterilized jars and process in a water bath for 10 minutes. Let sit undisturbed for 24 hours, then store in a dark, cool place. Will keep for at least a year.
