Pacific Island Mango Chutney

The following is Gillian's recipe (Food, Recipes & Little Known Facts From The Past) for Pacific Island Mango Chutney

(Chutney is a sauce or relish of East Indian origin, often compounded of both sweet and sour ingredients, as fruits and herbs, with spices and other seasoning.)


  1. 1 kilo (2.2 pounds) green mango pieces
  2. 2 chopped onions
  3. 1 cup raw sugar
  4. 1 cup other sugar (white will do)
  5. 2 cups vinegar
  6. 2 tablespoons finely chopped green ginger
  7. 2 cloves crushed garlic
  8. 2 teaspoons chilli powder
  9. 1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
  10. 1 cup raisins

  1. Simmer everything except the raisins until the mango is almost tender.
  2. Add the raisins.
  3. Cook until the mango is very, very tender and has a lovely translucent look.
  4. The syrup should be quite thick.
  5. Cook slightly before sealing.
  6. If you want to keep this is a cupboard rather than the refrigerator or give it a longer life (it really should be kept in the fridge and used within a few weeks), then add about 2 tbs salt to the recipe.

Exotic tastes but an interesting recipe for a cool sauce. We love mango so I am going to try this soon.
