Sweet Mango Chilli Sauce is a fuss-free 10 min lip-smacking and tongue-tickling recipe that goes well with chips, starters, as a spread on bread and rolls or simply as a dressing.
It’s the season of Mangoes and though here we get mangoes all year round, the one’s which we get this time of the year are the best. They are sweet and juicy. Yes, the local shops have nice and juicy. I need not go for the Indian Variety and wait for a year.
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 for 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.

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
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.
This Sweet Mango Chilli sauce is a fuss-free 10 min recipe and goes well with chips, crisps, bread’s or as a dressing to your salads. It has the sweetness from the mangoes and the kick from the chillies, garlic and ginger. Truly a lip-smacking sauce.
