Sweet mango chutney

This chutney is of the sweeter variety, and makes for a delicious condiment next to a spicy main meal. Leela also suggests serving it as a dessert, and we’ve tried it with some vanilla ice cream to great success. It keeps well in the fridge because of the sugar content, and the longer it sits, the softer the mango flesh gets.
