  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 large mangos, slightly ripe, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon grated ginger, or less, to taste (or 1/8 teaspoon ginger powder)
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 cardamon pods
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala (or more cinnamon)
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium-size saucepan. Add mango chunks and if using, fresh ginger. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add sugar, ground ginger, if using, cardamom pods, ground cloves, cinnamon, and garam masal. Stir and cook over low heat until slices are tender and sauce thickens, about 15-20 minutes. (Be careful not to get the sugar crystals on the sides of the saucepan.)
  3. When mixture thickens, add vinegar and salt, to taste; and stir. Continue to cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and allow to cool at room temperature. It will thicken as it cools.
  5. Remove cardamon pods, discard, and stir in chili powder. Taste the chutney and add additional amounts of seasoning to your liking.
  6. When your Indian mango chutney is ready, transfer it either to a small serving bowl for serving or cover and refrigerate up to 1 month.
