Recipe: Grilled mango chutney

Updated: 10-01-2008

Dietitian's tip: Chutney is a relish of fruit simmered with vinegar and spices. Serve this version at room temperature over chicken or rice or chill and spread over English muffins.


Serves: 8

1 mango, peeled and pitted
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary


Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.

Arrange the mango on the grill rack or broiler pan. Grill or broil on medium heat, turning often, until slightly browned and softened, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

Remove from the mango from the grill and let cool for a few minutes. Transfer the mango to a cutting board and chop into small chunks.

Place the mango in a large saucepan. Add the sugar, onion, vinegar, bell pepper and spices. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pepper and onion are soft, about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.
