I bought several pickles this week and I have to share with you what I thought of the Waitrose hot and spicy mango chutney. Well. I was very impressed by it’s taste and felt that I should write and let everyone know about this chutney. It was sweet with just the right amount of heat from the chilies. It wasn’t runny like some cheap chutneys and neither was it all sugary. The spices used in the chutney were aromatic and the taste was very similar to the Indian pickles I am used to. it had plenty of whole cardamoms, cardamom powder, cinnamon powder, ginger powder, black pepper, clove powder, nutmeg as well chili flakes, cumin seeds, chili powder, black onion seeds, white pepper, black peppercorns, cloves to give the chutney a bit of a kick. We had the chutney with hot puris as well as home made pita chips. It’s really a good chutney to have in the fridge to serve with any accompaniment.
Mango chutney is the classic accompaniment served with most Indian meals. I love eating the chutney with fresh hot puris. However, this year I wasn’t able to get good raw mangoes for making any mango pickles or relish’s so was really pleased to be able to find this ready made pickles.
Do you have any favourite Chutneys you can recommend? Would you serve ready-made pickle or chutney?
