Over the last few weeks the markets have been flooded with mangoes from Mexico. I am particularly fond of mangoes and after a long winter of mostly apples I was really please to see the mangoes and I picked up a lot of them. I may have even picked up too many of them and I needed to use them before they went bad. It was the perfect chance to try another mango chutney recipe.
I first discovered mango chutney in the grocery store a little over a year ago and I really liked it. Since then I have been trying to make my own and I have tried several recipes but I have not been pleased with any of them. After another search on the net I came across this recipe for mango chutney that sounded good. I noticed that this recipe include vinegar and I am pretty sure that vinegar is included in the store bought version that I like so much. I was thinking that the tangy vinegar might have been what was missing from my previous attempts.
This mango chutney turned out great! The flavours were just amazing! The chutney was sweet and tangy and spicy with just the right amount of heat. I now have a new favorite mango chutney!

I love chutney and have always wanted to try making it. Your recipe looks awesome, Kevin!
Michelle C says
I don’t think I’ve ever had chutney! It looks good in the picture …
I just read about mangoes in food that harm and foods that heal and it was basically saying that there are no negatives to mango!
Nice looking chutney. I always bought mango chutney from Trader Joe’s or the Indian grocer but next time mangos are on sale I plan on making some. I’ll report back when I do.
you always make the most yummy looking dishes! they look so flavorful^^
When you sit down to eat, do you ever just think to yourself, “Man, self, you are frickin awesome”?
I’m wondering because I’m looking through your archived recipes, and that’s what I’m thinking. Only, not the self part.

That looks like fabulous chutney. Send me some! =)
Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella says
I can’t eat Indian food without raita and mango chutney-looks great!
Did you not find the mangos from Mexico stringy!
Id love this for my ham on sunday!
Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) says
Such a great way to take advantage of the abundance of mangoes in the market now. I’m much more a chutney person than a sweet jam person. In the Fall we make pear chutney with the pears from our trees. Now, if only I had mango trees….
Christina Kim says
Oh this would be lovely with a piece of hot naan. I am a big fan of ataulfo mangoes right now, they are so creamy and easy to cut!
I love chutney… especially with raisins. I wish I had thought of this when I had too many mangoes – Yumm!
unconfidential cook says
I lovelovelove mango chutney, and have never tried making it myself….Thanks for the recipe.
awesome – my (Pakistani) parents use mango chutney as a substitute for duck sauce – try it! I suppose this recipe would work really well for another Indian/Pakistani staple chutney – plum chutney….ooh, or even Imli chutney (tamarind) if you could get fresh tamarind pods. Thanks! I’ll try it this summer after exams are over.
Nice. All in one makes it so easy. Reminds me of the dried apricot version I used to make centuries ago – same ingredients but I never measured them.
I love Mango Chutney! I’m so glad you posted this, I will be giving this a try soon. I usually buy store bought mango chutney from a little Indian store by my house but it would be nice to make my own. thank you.
Rosa's Yummy Yums says
Wonderful! I love cgutneys!
I love mangoes and the chutney looks superb! If I get alphonso mangoes here I’ll try this.
you’re a godsend. I’ve just been looking for mango chutney recipes! thanks!
do you use fresh ripe mangoes? because some people say to use green ones.
burpandslurp: I used ripe ones (but not too ripe) as I have been unable to find green ones. It would be nice to be able to find some green mangos (and some green papayas) as there are a few recipes that I have been wanting to try that call for them.
Oh my goodness, this is perfect!! Ive been on the search for a good mango chutney for a while. Whole Foods has one I regularly buy but now I will make yours. Thanks! 🙂
Foodie with Little Thyme! says
I love Mango!
Hi! this looks great and creative. I like the use of some unique spices for most the chutneys I see. Hope you can drop by soon.
ok–you’ve inspired me to bust out the canning kit! We have a bunch of mangos in our markets, too!
That chutney looks wonderful, Kevin! Love having the sweet fruit with some tang to it, delicious!
My mom is always buying mango and we usually just eat them plain. We’ll have to try this recipe out!
I love mango chutney! Thanks so much for the recipe, Kevin.
How perfect, I have a couple of mangoes in the fridge waiting to be used and now I think I know what to do with them! 😉
I am so happy to see the influx of mangoes as well in particular the yellow ones they call Champange Mangoes..this variety is way better than the greenish/redish one. I believe that’s what you’re using..so sweet less fiber. Love anykind of chutney. You’re mango chutney looks really good!
Oh yes, I can just imagine how great this tastes.
Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits, but I don’t have them often. This looks so great.
I go crazy over mangoes…nostalgic too..loos awesome kevin !!
The Mexican mangoes have been okay, but not as good as the Chilean mangoes that our store had over the winter months. I love chutney, and your recipe looks great.
I love the ingredients, this sounds amazing.
Treehouse Chef says
This recipe looks great! I am just curious as to what foods you combine with the mango chutney.
That looks fantastic! Too bad mangoes are no longer in season here. I wonder if I can substitute with something else!
Yet another ‘must make’ my list is huge! I’ve never made chutney and I love mango chutney – thanks for the recipe Kevin it looks great.
I canned some one year, and it was great to have little jars of it lined up all ready for me to use.
Wow, great job!!! It looks marvelous!
I never had chutney, yours looks fantastic, all those great flavors! I’ll have to try! Thanks 🙂
With that… give me Briyani or Tomato Rice, mooru, masala chai, vindaloo, papadum, crispy fried bitter gourd and Rasam! You made me day! 🙂
Don’t worry about which type of mango to use. My personal taste is half ripe. Firstly, it’s more fragrant than green mango and after cooking it’s able to hold it’s shape. Also, if it’s very ripe, I usually cut down a bit of the sugar or increased the sourish taste with tamarind paste/juice. You can also use any types of mango from usual roundish mango to Elephant Tusk, Waterlily, Black Gold, Chukanan, etc.
You did the Mango Chutney very well!
Sweet and spicy combinations are good for so many things! This looks great.
This is such a coincidence: I just tested a vegan recipe using mango chutney, but mine was store bought.
ana dane says
isn’t mango chutney the best? now you just have to try it in a grilled cheese, or at the very least, over some sharp cheddar on crackers. it’s heavenly.
That is calling my name… I love chutneys, & mango chutney is the best! I could have that entire jar:-D
Really nice Kevin with a ton of choices of foods to add it to.
Whaaaa!! I find it strange that the previous ones didn’t have vinegar! Anyway, I can’t wait to see what you’ve served this with! 🙂
I happily eat mango chutney with just about everything, but especially with chicken.
Oh Kevin, this looks so good. One of the first things we learned to do when I was at Culinary school was to make mango chutney. It’s a very popular condiment over here. In a Turkey sandwich it’s just wonderful! I love mangos any way I can have them actually. They are one of my favourite fruits!
One can never have to many chutneys floating around the house. So many uses and so many wonderful flavors.
Kevin – I can chutneys and give them away as gifts. It looks like I am running low and this post reminded me to get busy again!
Food For Tots says
Mango is our family’s top favourite esp Pakistan mango. The texture is so creamy like ice cream. Your mango chutney looks great. Must give it a try soon.
I love anything mango, so this would be a perfect recipe to try.
I love mango chutney. Your’s looks yummmy.
YUM, I love Mango’s that sounds amazing!
I love chutney, thanks for the recipe. I hope you enjoyed your Easter Sunday!
I’ve never made a chutney before, this looks great!
Now what would you put it on? Would it be good with chicken??
My Carolina Kitchen says
Your mango chutney looks wonderful. I’ve noticed that mangos are on sale at our market now. When you get a chance, you would enjoy reading one of my favorite books, An Embarassment of Mangos by Ann Vanderhoot.
I just adore mango chutney on my curry chicken or curry chicken salad. Looks good Kevin.
Zesty Cook says
This is “HIGH” end
This sounds great! I’m going to make this for sure. This would be absulutely superb with on some Chillian Sea Bass…There may be other kinds of fish it would be good on to.
Thanks for this delicious recipe. I’ll have to try to make my own.
Mrs Ergül says
wow! i’m glad this time it worked! Mango Chutney! They are usually costly when you buy them off the shelves!
chez aurora says
sounds yummy Kevin! I made some myself as they are so cheap right now!
Looks great, Kevin. I love serving this stuff with a simple roast pork.
i’ve been looking for mango chutney at all the stores around here and haven’t been able to find any! i just started looking for some recipes the last couple days. i am going to give yours a try! thanks for posting it!
megan (brooklyn farmhouse) says
I’ve been meaning to make mango chutney for years – thank you for the recipe! It looks amazing, can’t wait to try!
This sounds scrummy Kevin. I love mango chutney, but have never tried making my own. Thanks for the inspiration.
I’m bookmarking your site. I just have to try your mango chutney recipe. I’ve always wanted to try swordfish, too. Noticed you have a recipe for that, too. Can’t wait to try these recipes! The blueberry cheesecake looks delicious! Also the asparagus/mushroom quiche – love new ideas for cooking some of my favorite foods! Keep the recipes coming!
I came across your site through the food blog search while questing for a nice Mango chutney recipe. I used it for Chutney and Cheddar Cheese sandwiches and it’s just delicious!! I can totally eat it straight out of the container. It’s a perfect blend of sweet, spice, and vinaegar…and so easy to make. Thanks for sharing it!
James Walsh says
I made this last night and it turned out very well. I didn't have cardamon and i was a little heavy with the cayenne but it didn't matter in the end. A sign of a good recipe is how forgiving it is sometimes. Mangoes are in season now so I will buy some and make a big batch. I usually eat the Major Grey's commercial chutney. The nice thing about this recipe is that it is really easy and straightforward. You measure everything out, put it in a pan and let it cook. I took out the magoes before I reduced the liquid so they would go into mush.
The only change I made was a little honey and a few bay leaves.
Thank you for the recipe.
Great recipe! My finicky husband declared it deelish! Want now to try blueberry muffins to take to my grandsons. THANK YOU for all your wonderful recipes.
what do u mean by mangos stoned?? and this looks really yummy !
Someone brought me from india little baby mangoes in a fiery hot chutney that I Am quite terrified to use!
I've been flooded with mangoes as well. SO amped for chutney.
Kevin – I definitely want to make this! Do you think I can use a cider vinegar?
Sarah: Cider vinegar would definitely work.
Kevin – I made a small batch tonight. I did use the apple cider vinegar and it worked out great! I omitted the cardamom simply because I didn't have any. Used a finely chopped red bell pepper instead of the chili, as well as crystallized ginger since I was out of the fresh kind. The spices that you put into your recipe are just amazing, each one is so special and together they were incredible!
How long would it last? does it need to be in the fridge?
I would try it, it looks yummy!
Anonymous: If you use the proper canning procedures this will keep, sealed, outside of the fridge for several months. Once opened it will keep in the fridge for several weeks top a few months.
I made this last (southern) summer and despite making a triple batch, it was all gone by the middle of autumn. This year I am going to make a year's worth – about eight batches worth! That is how dedicated I am to this recipe. I loved it with curry, I loved it with cheddar and fresh baked bread, I just loved it. Thanks for sharing.
I used your mango chutney with aged cheddar and cashews, and turned it into a really good stuffed Chicken.
Thank you for sharing your chutney recipe.
This looks delicious! I think I may combine the mango chutney with the Jingle Bell Jar idea, and use that for Christmas gifts 🙂
How much does this make?
Lesley Fairbairn says
I made this for all my grown kids and their families for Christmas. It was a big hit ! I’m now making a second batch but trying it with white sugar to try and preserve more of the Mango colour.
Lesley Fairbairn says
I used frozen Mango and 6 cups = 1kg.
