Homemade Mango Chutney

I have always wanted to try making mango chutney and I managed to pull out the lazy bones out of me and tada , a bottle of mouth watering mango chutney. I dedicate this to Zurin of Cherry On A Cake.

On July 27, she introduced a dish named Sri Lankan Salad Moju which uses fruit pickle , more specifically mango chutney. It’s hard to find mango chutney off the shelf over here, so I decided to make my own, I searched for homemade mango chutney and I knew that this one will turned out delicious! There are so many variations but I chose this one and I was not disappointed. Good things are for sharing :p This mango chutney can be eaten as a side condiment or use it to make salad as Zurin had done. It can be taken with roast chicken too…yay.. this mango chutney can be used in many ways! Just the thought of it....many dishes come to stay tuned :)))

cubed mangoes, diced onion, mustard seeds, golden raisins,
crystilised ginger , sugar, distilled vinegar, chilli flakes
are the ingredients used for making this mango chutney

after 1 hour of stirring and stirring the mango mixture,
inhaling this golden richness that so arouses my
salivary glands....mmmmm worth my time standing
over the stove stirring this golden richness !

the above amount was enough to fill up one glass jar
content of 500 gms

I could not resist taking a close up shot :p

you can slurps it off from your screen or try it out and
slurps the real thing...haha juz kidding :) ;)

Homemade Mango Chutney


· 3/4 cups sugar
· ½ cup distilled white vinegar
· 3 cups mangoes (3 mangoes), peeled and cut in 1/2-inch pieces
· 1 medium onion, diced
· 1/4 cup golden raisins
· 1/4 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped
· 1 garlic clove, minced
· 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds, whole
· 1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes (hot)


Combine sugar and vinegar in a pot; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, until syrupy and slightly thickened, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Stir occasionally during cooking.
Pour into clean jar and cool it before keeping it in the fridge .
