Chutney made with pineapple, mango, spices, chili pepper, cilantro
Chutney is from the Hindu word chatni, pronounced (CHUHT-nee), this spicy mixture of chopped fruit, vinegar, sugar and spices originated in India.
This wonderful condiment ranges in texture from chunky to smooth. The degrees of spiciness from mild to fiery. It is a delicious accompaniment to curried dishes and meats.
Since fruits are plentiful at this time of year, use your imagination to satify your family's taste. Apples are a good basis for this condiment.
Sweeter fruits make spirited spreads and dip. They are a tasty accompaniment to cheese (try a mango mixture with brie or cream cheese and crackers). We use toasted taco shells as our "dippers".
The addition of red chili peppers turn up the heat, so taste carefully.
Traditionally, recipes from India are usually mixtures of fresh ingredients chopped or ground by hand and left uncooked. Raw ingredients might include fresh ginger, mint, coriander, cilantro, mango, or other fruits and coconut.
Western versions are often simmered to a thick consistency. They tend to be made with mango, but may contain apples, raisins,pears, apricots, or onions and garlic.
