Mango Chutney

BM # 53   Week 3  Day 1

Kids Delight , fruit recipes ! When Valli announced this theme, I took it up . To tell the truth I am not a fruit person, but I love fruit forms. I love fruity chaats, fruity bakes, fruity salads,not to miss the fruity drinks! For the very first day under this theme I shall share the recipe of Mango Chutney. Yes this is the Mango Chutney which I served with Whole Wheat Sesame Crackers.

This is a chutney which can be stored outside for about a week but if you refrigerate it it can last a while.So let's get on to the recipe.

Mango chutney

1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp methi seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp nigella seeds
Pinch hing
Few whole red chillies, broken into pieces
2 large raw mangoes, peeled and cubed
1/8 tsp turmeric powder
Salt to taste
1/4 -1/2 cup sugar or jaggery

Heat oil.
Add the whole seeds, let crackle.
Add asafetida.
Add whole red chillies.
Add chopped peeled mango pieces.
Add salt and turmeric powder.
Saute again for another 2-3 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup water, let the mango cook 75%.
Add sugar or jaggery and let cook till one string syrup is formed.
Switch off the gas.
Let cool .
Transfer to sterilized jar.
You could refrigerate the chutney for a longer shelf life.

Note The sugar or jaggery depends on the sourness of the mangoes, the chutney is more on the sweeter side. How ever you can adjust the sweetness according to your personal taste.
The chutney can be left out but I prefer to store it in the refrigerator.
