Chutneys are an essential part of any meal. They are made up of different fruits and vegetables or sometimes even the peel of the vegetable.  Its a pureed form or paste form of any fruit or veggie with spices and even a tempuring sometimes. Chutneys add a extra taste or dimention to a meal.

Today its Mango chutney, which is sweet in taste and is made up of half ripe or ripe mango. I have added paprika or red chilli too, for a spicy taste.  Looks so delectable and tempting. You can use Mango Chutney as a spread on bread or as a marinade for various meat cuts. Mango Chutney goes well with chicken wings, pork, and beef too.

I have not used vinegar as i am making in a small quantity to last a few days or probably a couple of weeks in refrigerator. Lets get started!
