FAQ

What’s The Purpose Of The Sweetener In The Chutney?

While the sweetener brings flavoring to the sauce, it’s actually used to help get it to the right consistency. So, if your isn’t turning out to be the consistency you like, this is something you may want to adjust.  

If you need to thicken the sauce even more, consider adding a small amount of cornstarch, stir it all together and saute longer. 

What’s The Difference Between Mango Chutney And Jam Or Jelly? 

Jams and jelly are sweeter than chutney. Jams usually use pectin to get the gel-like, thick, consistency while chutney has no added pectin and can have chunks of ingredients or blended more smoothly.

What Kind Of Mangoes Should You Use? 

Guys, if possible use fresh mangos for this recipe. You want to choose mangos that still feel slightly hard when pressed. Make sure you wash and peel them first before chopping them.
