A sweet, spicy, tangy and naturally gluten free Indian mango chutney recipe. Adjust the spices to your taste and serve with your favorite Indian dishes or plain meats.


  • 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.



Add sauteed onion and/or celery, if desired.

Gluten Free Custard Recipe for Cream Puffs, Creme Brulee and More!

Baked Custard

Custard is my favorite dessert next to ice cream and this one is my favorite, as it is a custard recipe for cream puffs! I also use it for creme brulee. It’s a great all-purpose gluten free custard, without the use of any flour. I created a Gluten Free Cream Puff Recipe yesterday upon the request of one of my readers and for my father who is visiting me. He’s Italian and cannot resist a cream puff, even a gluten free cream puff! A matter of fact, I had my best shaped cream puff on the table and had left the room. Upon returning, I found the cream puff in his mouth! I told him I was saving that one to fill and needed to take a picture of it. He said, “The damage is done!” and laughed! We both laughed. My father is 100% Italian and cream puffs are a delicacy. He loved that one but loved the ones I later filled even more. Being a connoisseur of cream puffs, he can attest to that this custard recipe for cream puffs is tops in his book! I hope you enjoy, as we both did!
