    This looks terrific – I’ll give it a go next time I see some reasonably priced mangos

    My favourite thing to do with mango chutney is to put it into a toasted sandwich with blue cheese. Odd, I know, but very nice!

    I adore mango chutney, all kinds of chutneys actually and I eat it with virtually anything… My mother’s minted apple chutney with bread and cheese, for instance – unbeatable. I only discovered your blog recently and I love it! Straightforward and all the recipes are great!

    I use a recipe for chutney from the Moosefood Lowfat Favorites cookbook that looks just about like this one. I use it when I make Indian cuisine, but also brush it on chicken halfway through grilling and serve it with pork tenderloin with a side of couscous and a light cucumber salad.

    Elise, this looks AWESOME. I love mango chutney. Of course, I always stir it into stuff like my Chicken Masala and Curried Chicken salad, but I like it with grilled thick cut pork chops or a pork roast. Of course it goes well with Roasted, broiled or Grilled Chicken too. It seems to go well with any grilled, smoky meats.
