  • 3 mangoes
  • 30 g ginger roots
  • 10 cl wine vinegar
  • 180 g of brown sugar
  • ½ tsp chili paste
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg powder
  • 4 dried figs
  • 50 g raisins
  • 1 handful of slivered almonds
  • 2 slices of canned pineapple (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Step 1 Cut the mango and pineapple pulp into small dice. Peel the ginger root and grate it. Warm up the vinegar with the sugar in a pan for about 3 minutes on medium high. Stir regularly. Add the mango (and the pineapple bits) and keep cooking for another 5 minutes. Stir. Add the chili, the ginger, the nutmeg, salt, and pepper and cook for an extra 15 minutes.
  • Step 2 In the meantime, cut the figs into small bits, add to the preparation along with the raisins and the almonds. Stir and cook for another 10 minutes. Make sure the preparation does not burn by stirring regularly.

Good to know!

This chutney is delicious without the figs and almonds as well, more particularly to accommodate Indian dishes. If you choose not to use figs and almonds, just don’t do the last 10 minute-cooking part.
