This Mango Chutney recipe is packed with flavor from fresh mangos, onion, bell pepper and spices. Enjoy it with sweet or savory dishes, or with a side of Naan.
Whenever we venture out for Indian food (which happens as often as possible!) I always order Mango Chutney to go with our meal. The last time we ate out, I knew I wanted to recreate some for you all, because it’s one of my favorite condiments! We enjoy it most served on grilled pork tenderloin or chicken, a scoop added to chicken salad, or with tikka masala and naan. It’s so easy to make and versatile and the homemade version can’t be beat!
What is a Chutney?
A chutney is a delicious spicy condiment that originated in India. It is made with vinegar, sugar, spices, and fruits or vegetables. This mango chutney is used for both sweet and savory dishes.
I try to find champagne mangos for chutney, because of their extra smooth velvety texture, but you can really use any type of mango!
