Sweet Mango Chilli Sauce

Last Updated on

It’s the season of Mangoes and though here we get mangoes all year around, the one’s which we get this time of the year are the best. They are sweet and juicy. Yes even If I do not go for the Indian Variety and buy it from the local shop. This time I was so happy to find the sweetest and the juiciest mango from a local grocery store. I do not need any excuse to eat mango and I do not need to make any recipe of it either. But still I love to explore food and thought of making this lip smacking Sweet Mango Chilli Sauce.

A little about Mangoes

Mango is rich in Vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They have been associated with many health benefits, including improved immunity, digestion, good for the heart, eye, skin and keeps your hair healthy. Mangoes are tropical stone fruits, plump and oval. They only grow in warmer climates and are native to India and Southeast Asia.

The Challenge

This month I am participating in  Recipe Swap Challenge a group by Jolly Makkar who blogs at Homemade Recipes. She paired me against Swaty Malik who blogs at Food-Trails. You will find a wonderful collection of vegetarian recipes on Swaty’s blog . I think our taste buds do match. It was really difficult to shortlist one recipe from her blog. I had shortlisted her Mango Chilli Sauce the moment I saw it. Still I was searching for a few more and I got confused between this, Garlic and Spring onion noodles and her Paneer Ki kheer. But since it is the season of mangoes I decided to make this yummy Sweet Mango Chilli Sauce

I followed her recipe to the core and did no changes to it. I ran out of chilli flakes and so what I did was powdered some Indian Dry red chillies. It really added a kick to my sauce. This Sweet Mango Chilli Sauce got me and my hubby hooked. I enjoyed it on some crisp, as a spread on my paratha’s and my hubby is enjoying it as chutney/sauce to the main meal.
