Sharing is caring!

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.

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.

Hi, yes you can water bath them. Do you want instructions on how to water bath? I have never done that, but if you do it should stay good as it has vinegar too in it. Once opened, keep it refrigerated however. Thanks, Renu

Made this today, and loving it! I added some jalapeno peppers and reduced the red pepper flakes. I live in the southwest, and well, we use jalapenos in about everything. Anyways, the heat/sweet is perfect and the jalapenos just add a bit of color! Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

This stays good for 3-4 months in the fridge, with proper hygiene practices followed. I have kept it for that long and it was good. I have not pressure canned or water bath it so would not be able to comment. If you need to preserve it the pulp really needs to be cooked properly else it might turn bad.

I would like to use fresh habanero chillies. Do you know how much fresh chilli would equal a teaspoon of flakes?

It depends on the chillies. Habenero chillies are hot to my understanding. I would say start with replacing 1 tablespoon flakes with 1.5 tablespoons of fresh. (Ideally, the ratio is 1:3), but when fresh chillies are cooked along, it imparts the same degree of hotness to a food.

Also, it is 1 tablespoon of flakes and not 1 teaspoon.

Thanks, Renu
