Fresh Mango Chutney

I love this Quick Trick because it's super fast and makes such a lovely addition to a curry. Rather than the jelly-like gloop that comes from the supermarket, simply follow the recipe below for something fresh to lift the heaviness of your curry. It also works great as a dip with mini poppadoms.

I can't claim ownership - this is:

Mama B's Mango Chutney

  • 1 fresh mango, diced
  • 1/2 a red onion, finely diced
  • Small bunch of coriander leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 fresh red chilli, finely chopped
  • Splash of lime juice (to your taste)
  • Dash of salt and pepper

Mix together and serve fresh!

The recipe above makes enough for 4 people to go with curry. I'd suggest doubling quantities if you're planning on making it more of a feature of your meal - whether it's a dinner party or chips and dips with the girls. I love eating mini poppadoms with this dip at our kitchen counter while L finishes cooking the curry. It's so fresh it really gets your taste buds going for the main meal.
