Mango Chutney (Bengali Style)

This Mango chutney is one of the last recipe I made in this mango season. There are many variations of making mango chutney from sweet to sour to raw to cooked versions.

In this Bengali Style mango chutney semi ripe mangoes are used so there is a sweet and tangy taste to the chutney. There is also ginger, so there is a fresh ginger flavor in the chutney.

If you want You can even make this chutney with unripe sour mangoes or ripe sweet mangoes. Just adjust the sugar accordingly depending upon the sweetness of the mangoes.

As a sweetener I have used powdered jaggery which gives earthy tones to this mango chutney but you can also use sugar instead.

I have already two more mango chutney recipes:

This mango chutney is very easy and is ready in 20 minutes. It is flavored with the panch phoran spices – the five spice mix use in Bengali cuisine – namely cumin or jeera, fennel (saunf), wild celery seeds (radhuni), fenugreek seeds (methi) and nigella (kalonji seeds).

Usually radhuni which are wild celery seeds is one of the spice used in this 5 spice mixture blend. But it is very difficult to get it outside bengal. So you can substitute it with either mustard or carom seeds. For this recipe I have used black mustard seeds.
