Our organic Sweet Mango chutney is the best way to enjoy the essence of ripe mangoes throughout the year. Simply delicious mango chutney with a real traditional Indian flavour can be served as an appetizer to crackers, breads, etc.
Sweet mango chutney blends juicy mango with authentic spices to create an irresistible addition to any Indian meal. Sweet, salty and a touch of vinegar, this mango chutney is guaranteed to be of great taste. It adds taste to exotic cold meats, salads, sandwiches, cheese, jacket potatoes, parantha, bread, baked and roasted chicken, rice, etc.
I have tasted many variations on the sweet mango theme over the years, including a home-crafted version that I made myself, but this chutney is quite unique. It lacks the cloying sweetness of many commercial varieties yet still manages to taste of the fresh fruit. We were having one of those combination meals with two close friends, the sort where different foods come together as all the leftovers get used up! We had roast vegetables and a small amount of meat left from the previous evening's dinner, and to this we added freshly cooked silver beet and pan fried prawns with eggs Thai style. Normally I would saute the fish and eggs in butter and tamarind sauce, but decided to use the sweet mango instead.
To say this was successful would be an understatement. Mangos are a little sweeter than tamarinds, but it did not seem to matter - the result was just as good if not better. They were great with the silver beet, and were perfect with the other vegetables as well. I was quite pleased with myself when our friends congratulated me on my choice of chutney, and passed the jar round so they could read the label for themselves.
In fact, the flavour was hard to define. Cardamom was a strong rival for the mango although the actual quantity of the former was not displayed on the label. The result was pretty well a fusion of the two flavours with the best of both emerging, however, so the relative quantities did not really matter. (There was also some cinnamon in the mix, but I could not taste that at all.)
A couple of days later, we were with another couple of friends who suggested we have cheese rolls for lunch - a specialty in this part of the world. They usually serve a pickle or chutney alongside, so I suggested they try the sweet mango. Again it was highly successful, providing an interesting extra to complement the cheese and onion flavours of the rolls. Only a little was needed to completely change the flavour and provide that extra zing.
That evening we were intending to have cold meat and salad, so serving it with a good dollop of chutney was a no-brainer. The ham was chunky, cut straight from the bone, and the slight sweetness of the meat found a perfect match in the mango and spice flavour of the chutney. I am not a great fan of ham, but this combination was much nicer than most and I ended up having a second helping, much to my surprise.
