Mango chutney is a British Raj recipe inspired by the fresh chutneys made in India.

What is Mango Chutney

Chutneys come in two major groups, sweet and hot; both forms usually contain various spices, including chilli, but differ by their main flavour. Chutney types and their preparations vary widely across Pakistan and India.

Chutneys are usually wet, having a coarse to fine texture, however preserves often sweetened.
Vinegar or citrus juice may be added as preservatives, or fermentation in the presence of salt may be used to create acid. American and European styled chutneys are usually fruit, vinegar and sugar, cooked down to a reduction.
