Mango Ginger & Raw Mango Chutney For Magic Mingle

 

DSC_0939-1

Hi All!

It so happened that about a week back I went for my daily vegetable shopping and during that I picked up the regular stuff ..onion, potatoes, green chillies, garlic, ginger, coriander etc. After I returned home and started cooking I realised that the ginger I picked was some what different, it did not have the sharp smell and pungency of the regular ginger and then looking at it I realised that it looked a bit different too. I decided to taste it and was quite surprised with the taste, it had a mild flavour of the regular ginger and also of mango, I realised what I had  picked up was Mango Ginger.

 

I had heard about this but never used it till date. I knew that it was used in making pickle with the combination of mango. So, the next day I got the raw mango too and decided to make a chutney using the both. I wanted to add some unusual/ different flavour to the chutney and was wondering what to add when I received Kalyani’s mail informing me that the Monthly Mingle ingredients were revealed. I decided to settle on cinnamon. Now, chillies are a regular addition in most of the chutneys but the addition of cinnamon gave a very neat, subtle flavour to the chutney. I was myself pleasantly surprised, when so many natural flavours, with such subtleness, played music on my palate.

I was surely happy that my experimentation with Mango Ginger turned out so fruitful. I used the chutney in making sandwiches for the kid and believe me this chutney is excellent for digestion with all the advantages of the mango ginger and cinnamon.
