The first time I heard there was sauce named chutney, was in my hometown Caracas, back in Venezuela, while I was taking a look to Don Armando Scannone’s recipe book Mi cocina a la manera de Caracas. Thorough the time I learned chutney were sauces originally cooked in India.
My favorite was mango chutney, with a pungent spicy flavor, semi sweet and savory. My comadre Eirys (Tomás Godmother’s) brought me two jars a couple of months ago. Once they were done, I decided to make my own. So here I go with my mango chutney that I use, among other things to make mango BBQ sauce. I hope you like it.
