Growing up in India, I always saw my house filled with mangoes during summers. Mangoes, okra, ice-cream and summer holidays were my some of my very limited reasons to wait for this hot season since I am a winter person.
I remember whenever my father got posted to any city in the plains of India, we always had mango trees around our house. Things which we took for granted as kids now feel like a luxury.
In India, mango is not only consumed as a fruit, but it’s also used in making a lot of recipes. Both raw and ripe.
Mango chutney is one of the most common mango recipes and there are several different ways of making it. I have already shared the recipe of green mango chutney in this blog. If you have missed it, you can check it now.
Today I am sharing another very tasty sweet mango chutney which is also made with raw mangoes, jaggery/ sugar, and a few spices.
Like most of the other chutney’s this mango chutney is also very easy to make and gets ready within minutes.
The recipe is quite similar to the Bengali style tomato chutney.
My favorite ways of enjoying this chutney are either with a plain/ namkeen paratha (Indian bread) or spreading it on a crisp toast with a cup of tea.
Kids also love having this chutney because of it’s sweet and sour candy-like taste.
Before the mango season gets over, don’t miss to try out this Sweet mango chutney.
