Mango Chutney

First off a few disclaimers and admissions.

I look like a dork in the video at least partly because I am still raising money for The Movember Foundation

I was responsible for bringing the camera this time and I did bring two batteries but the second one appears to have failed so we swapped to another camera we had never used for video’s before and it did strange things with some of the colour so there are some black and white apples at one point for reasons beyond the comprehension of either of us.

The video is longer than we would have liked, we’re still honing our technique when it comes to filming these things and have learned what we can do next time to still show you all of the recipe without taking so damn long.

The ingredients and alternative options are listed after the video.

Ingredients:

3 large underripe mangos

3 Cooking apples (we used Granny Smiths)

2 Large Onions

Thumb sized piece of fresh Ginger, you could use stem or powdered if you wanted.

Oil, we used mustard oil, but anything you like will be fine, traditionally ghee would be used instead.

1tbs Mustard Seeds

2 Star Anise

1 Stick of Cinnamon

20 Whole Peppercorns

As many chilli flakes as you’d like, I was generous but by all means swap for smoked paprika or leave it out

300 gms caster sugar, any granulated sugar you have is fine

125ml of White wine vinegar (any tart vinegar you have)

Juice of half a lemon

2tsp Salt

A couple of handfuls of chopped dried apricots (you could use raisins, dates, prunes or any other dried fruit if you prefer)

A few dried curry leaves for colour at the end.

Thanks for watching and your feedback
